No microgames in the Unity Hub.

Hello,
I have just started taking the official online course offered by Unity, and one of its early steps is using a microgame.
I have installed the Unity Hub and the latest LTS version of the Unity Editor, but I failed to find any microgame templates when creating my first project.
I also tried to import them from the Package Manager in the Unity Editor, but they were not listed there.

I have read some suggestions that I should use an older LTS version of Unity, so should I do that or is there a way to fix this?

Thank you so much for your help. Took me hours to figure that out.
I will download the latest version supported by my tutorial and will update the thread afterwards.

had same issue, at the time of this writing i downloaded the LTS 22.3.6f1 when following the learning path and the microgame templates were not available, so i downloaded the supported editor version 2021.3, then selected that editor and then clicked on the templates and there were the microgames listed

hope this helps some move forward!

Thank you for pointing this out to us regarding the Microgames not showing up in the learn templates for the latest LTS. The good news, is that the Microgames should work just fine in that version, and you can get them for free on the Asset Store. You may just need to upgrade some materials or packages, depending on the one you are using.

The reason why these are not showing up for the latest LTS, is that they have become a bit outdated and do not hit our current standards for templates these days. The learn team is aware and is applying resources to not only attempt to correct this issue, but to explore what other aspects may be needed to make the Microgames better than before. Lot's of questions up in the air and decisions to make. I know the answer seems clear from the outside in the sense of just needing someone to update them to 2022.3 LTS, however we need to take a better look at the situation so that we can apply our resources on long term solutions and plans for our users best interests.

We appreciate the patience you have shown and your continued excitement while we work on our side to make things right for you.

Kind Regards,
Unity Chan

I am using the 2022.3 LTS, however, there is still NO Microgames template. If it's outdated, could you just remove this part from your tutorial. It's so confusing.

How about you make them compatible with newer versions?
