The best indie games don’t just need a team of people to make them, they need a system that can automate that process, and that’s where the company behind The Binding of Isaac franchise, Team17, comes in.
Team17’s Unity development toolkit is already used by other big studios, like Epic Games, to make their games look like they’re built entirely in Unity.
Team 17’s Unity developer tools are already used in other big-name games, like Crytek’s Crysis and EA’s SimCity.
But Team17 is using Unity’s Unity Development Kit to make The Binding Of Isaac, its first game in five years.
The game itself is a collection of five short video games, all of which were created with Unity.
The Binding game is built with Unity; it’s a standalone game that uses a custom engine to create it.
In fact, Team 17 calls the game The Binding, and its Unity toolkit and game engine are the only pieces of software it uses to create The Binding.
“We were really surprised at how much Unity is actually used in The Binding,” said Alex Henderson, a programmer at Team 17.
“There’s a lot of Unity code we’re using in The Bindings development process.
It’s not just the game, it’s everything from our development process.”
The game has been in development since February 2017, with the team having been working on it for six months.
The team has also been working closely with The Binding’s publisher, Epic Games.
They have worked with Epic to make the game look as similar to their own game as possible, but with Team 17 doing the heavy lifting of the actual game’s creation.
“Team17 is actually the one who actually created the game engine, so they’re the one that’s going to be able to make it look and play like the game they’ve been working so hard on,” Henderson said.
Unity’s capabilities in creating games have come in handy as well.
Team 13 and Epic have been working together for years to develop games for the PC, the PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One.
Unity is a great tool for games, but it has also come in for criticism in the past.
Developers have complained about the lack of cross-platform compatibility with popular games like Minecraft and Star Wars: Battlefront II.
However, Henderson said Unity has been working very closely with Epic Games to bring some of its features to The Binding: an improved AI, better AI controls, and an improved level editor.
The developers also say the Unity tool kit has helped them create games that look and feel better than those they had previously made.
“Unity is a really powerful tool for us, and it’s great for building games for mobile devices,” Henderson explained.
“But at the same time, it also allows us to build games for consoles and PCs and consoles for PC.”
The Binding is one of the first games Team 17 has made in Unity, but Henderson said they hope that more games will be made using the Unity tools in the future.
“Our next project is going to probably be the next big game for The Binding.”
