“Shader Forge has completely changed my outlook on working with Unity; As an artist, having the power to create my own shaders without learning code is an absolute must, and with SF I discovered a tool that goes above and beyond every other node-based editor”
Robert Briscoe, artist & designer on Dear Esther
