How to Create a New Project in Unity

A Unity project refers to a collection of files, assets, and settings that are organized within the Unity game development engine. It serves as the foundation for creating, editing, and building a game or interactive application.

When creating a Unity project, it establishes a designated workspace where one can develop the game or an application.

To create a project in Unity, follow the steps below:


  • Install the Unity Hub and any version of Unity (if you haven't yet)
  • In Unity Hub click on 'Projects' then click 'NEW'
  • A new window will appear where you can set the project name, select the project template, and pick the location where the project folder will be created:

Unity Hub project creator window.

  • If you want to develop a 2D game, select the '2D' template, otherwise select the '3D' template (Tip: Click on the (i) icon near each template to see what's included in it).
  • Click 'CREATE' and wait for the new project to initialize.
  • After the project is created, the Unity editor will be opened automatically:

Unity 2020.2.3f1 Editor Window.

That's it, you have now created a new project in Unity and can begin developing a game or another type of project.
