After my participation in LD32 (my first!) I experienced the pain of having limited time to work on making some cool mechanics, art and audio, only to realize at the last minute that I didn’t have time for basic functionality like a menu, pause screen and music and sound options.  Since I would like to be able to use these things myself in the next jam I decided to make a template package that’s publicly available for everyone to use, and since in between making jam games I work at Unity as part of the online content team (we make the tutorials for the Unity learn site)  we decided to publish it as an Official Unity Thing™.

See below for a download link and a list of functionality built in. The package has a read me file inside with setup instructions and I’ve done a live training for our live training series which walks through setup and also how the scripts work.
