2D Platformer Mod: Name the Game
1.
Name the Game!
Make it your game by customizing the Splash Screen!
Before you get started with this mod, make sure that you have installed the Getting Started Challenges Asset Pack from the Unity Asset Store. Detailed instructions here. Important! If you already have version 1.0 you must update to the latest version to complete this mod. Got it? Let's rock.
Our Splash Screen is made using Unity’s UI system. Let’s change the game’s name:
1. In the Hierarchy, select UI Canvas > Main > Header
2. In the Inspector, click on the Text field and type in the name of your game! As you make changes, you’ll see them reflected in the Game view.
3. Change the font by clicking the circle selector next to the Font Asset field and select a new font that you like from the list.
Enjoy your new Title Screen!
