It’s easy with Unity
Game development has always been our passion here at Outsoft. We create games of any all genres, whether it be first person shooters, action adventures, point & click adventures, simulations, RPGs, strategy games — you name it! So recently we’ve been asked what engine is the best for us and for other game developers from beginners to pros. Of course we can’t develop our own game engine, that would be a huge amount of work, costs and wasted time. Also there is already really cool software is out there accessible for everyone. So, Ladies and Gentlemen, we gladly want to talk today about Unity 3D.
Unity is a fully integrated cross-platform development engine that provides rich out-of-the-box functionality which allows you to create amazing games and other interactive 2D + 3D content.
So let’s found out why is it so awesome and why developers who want to jump start game development should give it a try.
What is very important is that Unity is an excellent platform for beginners who want to learn more about game development. In addition, it provides developers with online multilingual texts and video tutorials to begin game development and, practice different techniques to build high quality games.
The unity graphical editor makes it easy to design, layout unity scenes, insert objects, scripts, light effects, etc. The Unity graphics engine uses OpenGL, Direct3D, OpenGl ES for mobile platform (iOS, Android) and various APIs. It supports various file formats of different software, for instance, Adobe Photoshop, Blender and 3ds Max.
After developing your code in UnityScript, C#, or Boo, you can export your games to 17 different platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows, Web, Playstation, Xbox, Wii and Linux.Once you’ve got your game on all your chosen platforms, Unity will even help you distribute it to the appropriate stores, get social shares, and track user analytics.
Another great thing is that since the release of Unity 5.0, the completely free version includes all Pro features unless your company has made more than $100000 in revenue in its last financial year. It was a great impulse for lots of companies to expand themselves in game development. Try it and see for yourself.
So, at last, we want you to tell us about your Unity experience. We’ll be waiting for your comments with more advantages (or maybe disadvantages) of Unity, questions and thoughts of what game engine is the best.
