Nerial’s Card Shark stacks the deck with Unity

July 11, 2022

How does a boutique indie showcase a noted artist’s hand-drawn style in an immersive 2D multiplatform game? Nerial’s Card Shark explores the history of card tricks through carefully crafted monoprint artwork, all imported, layered, optimized, and brought to life in Unity.

Creating with handmade graphics required some trickery from Nerial’s small team, like loading highly complex 2D assets built with 4K textures and bringing technically disinclined artists into the production process. Fortunately, Nerial had an ace up their sleeve: Unity.
