What sort of camera does the Android game (2.5D) Swordigo uses? Is it an orthogrpahic camera? I think it is an angled orthographic projection.

How can I recreate that sort of camera in Unity?

  • \$\begingroup\$ yes, I am able to quite match the look by using an angled orthographic camera in unity, needed validation \$\endgroup\$ – Harsh Agrawal Oct 2 '18 at 16:24

    \$\begingroup\$ If you were able to match the look already, why do you need additional validation? If your solution works for your needs, it works for your needs. \$\endgroup\$ – DMGregory Oct 2 '18 at 16:58

This appears to be a perspective camera looking at the scene from the side. You can tell it's perspective because it shows the platforms from a slightly different angle depending on their position. The camera appears to be angled a slight bit downwards to better show off the top surfaces of the platforms.

An orthographic camera would render all plaforms in the exact same perspective (assuming they are all axis-aligned)

  • \$\begingroup\$ It also probably has a narrow field of view. I'd say close to 30 or 40 degrees instead of the usual 60, which makes things look flatter. \$\endgroup\$ – Draco18s no longer trusts SE Oct 2 '18 at 17:17
