Unity 3D is a game development platform that has become a star tool for indie and small company game developers, especially for mobile game devs. Unity offers a free version to learn on with modular upgrades to slowly work your way up to the full pro tools, allowing just about anyone to jump in and start making something fun.
Even though Unity’s point of entry is free to anyone, it’s no slouch in the graphics department. Unity has become the weapon of choice for many developers such as Mad Finger and Crescent Moon Games who have produced console level games such as Shadow Gun and Dead Trigger.
Unity is gearing up for it’s next major release, Unity 4, and with it will come some incredible new features to take mobile gaming to the next level. Lighting will reach whole new levels of realism with real time dynamic shadows and improved light-map baking. Unity 4 mobile will also include dynamic fonts, allowing developers to have crisper, higher quality fonts out of the box, making support for retina display devices easier than ever.
Utilizing Unity, individuals or teams like Untold can now produce visually stunning games and experiences easier than ever. This is not only exciting for us the developers but also for everyone with a phone or tablet. We’re hoping to serve up more engaging apps at a quality level you thought only possible on a console!
