Free Unity Assets: Top 21 websites in 2022

Looking to Free Unity Assets? Look no further. Here is a complete list of websites where you can get Free Unity assets.

A word of caution. When downloading free Unity assets, you should always look for the license that comes with the asset. Not every asset can be used in a commercial project and some assets will require you to provide credit to the artist. So, it’s better to go through the license details before downloading the asset. VionixStudio is not responsible if you use the asset without reading the license document.

You can use our Game asset finder to search all the website at once.

PNGtree is the home of images. They have images in all formats. The collection includes backgrounds, illustrations, text effects, marketing graphics and much more. You can get your hands on many 2D assets from PNGtree.

The quality of assets are really good and we regularly use PNGtree for our game’s UI. If you are planning to go with the subscription then I would suggest going for a life time license.
