Accelerated Development.

During the development of our playable teaser, Paws and Leaves – Roots of Me, we worked on Unity Engine version 2021.1 until May 2022. By this point, our build and compile times had increased significantly over the course of development. As a result, one day a week, a workstation was busy creating the latest build for the game and could not be used for any other creative work during those times.

As a young indie studio, we drive our game development with funding. Primarily, this covers our fix costs, so we enjoy the freedom to fully focus on our dream project itself. But unfortunately, when our time is shortened by higher calculations in the engine, e.g. for light and shadow, the time we could actually be creative is shortened as well.

That’s why we’re so glad NVIDIA approached us, because ever since then we can again do what we’re supposed to do: work creatively and productively on our dream project.

As a result of our cooperation with NVIDIA, we got a MSI P100X workstation, provided by notebooksbilliger.de that is validated by NVIDIA Studio and were able to experience its advantages firsthand. The combination of hardware and software runs out-of-the-box without any trouble. We had no issues with updating our game version with the new engine version of Unity and can now also benefit from the RTX acceleration in the Unity. Compilation times have dropped significantly, which allows us to spend more time developing the game again instead of e.g. creating builds or compiling shader variants. NVIDIA Studio allowed us to bring back time, time that we can spent for creative work on our dream game.
