Build your game in Unity

Unity is a cross-platform game engine used by many games on the Google Play Store. Unity’s modular tools help you produce and deliver highly engaging 2D or 3D mobile games.

Steps to create a Unity game for Android

To use Unity to create a game experience for players on Android, follow these steps:

  1. Download and install the Unity Hub.
  2. Start the Unity Hub. On the Installs tab, add a version of the Unity Editor that supports 64-bit apps. Note that these versions support Android App Bundles, which enable smaller, more optimized downloads.

    Add an editor in the Unity Hub

  3. During the installation of the Unity Editor, make sure to include the Android Build Support module by checking the box next to it.

  4. Expand the Android Build Support module. If you are using Unity 2019 or later, add the Android SDK & NDK Tools module.

    Add the Android Build Support NDK option in the Unity Hub

  5. Develop your game!

  6. Change build settings to output 64-bit libraries.
