(Game Dev) Let's play with... lighting cookies?!

Let's play with... lighting cookies?!

I tried out lighting cookies in Unity. It look really well, I really like it. I borrowed one texture from the game Amnesia - The Dark Descent. It also uses lighting cookies for nice shadows casted by windows for example. Will I use this feature? Why not! It looks pretty good! If I'm right, lighting cookie is a free feature of Unity game engine (the real time shadows casted by the character is pro only feature).

More information about lighting cookies can be found here.

Looks pretty well, the window should be nice that casts that shadow... (note: there is no window there, sorry!)
