The Linux support is huge. Between this, Kickstarter, and the Steam client port, the number of games available on Linux is going to explode over the next few years.

Don't see why people are disagreeing with you. this just means more REAL games on Linux, Android & better ones on Windows Windows w/ DX11

I'm still sticking with CryEngine 3 for my game.

You must have some deep pockets if you intend to sell the game commercially. For us small developers, Unity is a absolutely fantastic engine.

I'll have to second that.

Unless he's not planning to sell the game, commercially otherwise, he's looking at one hell of a f*cking steep licensing fee!

Unity is absolutely great! I'm enrolled in a 3 year game development program and I can tell you how much Unity has helped me out. Getting down to simple ideas and quickly prototpying them up in Unity is awesome.

I just wish I had the money to play around with the full version - would like to use it with my Android tablet, play with the pro version of the nice water, get that global illumination that I badly want etc.

Point being Unity is awesome.

You guys see the video of Gamebryo 4.0 from GDC 2012? Now that's the engine every game needs.

All jokes aside (except the video isn't a joke), Unity is a great engine for indie devs. Also, CryEngine's license fees are way to high for most of them.

It looked like some sort of mid-90s demonstration.

Really hope that Wasteland 2 will be powered by this new version of the Unity Engine
john2  +   919d ago
I know, ironic to answer to your own self but Brian Fargo has just revealed that Wasteland 2 will be, indeed, based on Unity Engine 4. Hooray!

awsome

I'm interested in how the real time shadows are going to perform on mobile now that that's an option. So far I don't really see anything on this list, as a mobile developer, that'll prompt me to shell out to upgrade version 3.5 any time soon. I guess we'll see as more details become available.
Bladesfist  +   919d ago
I can see why no one really has a reason to upgrade, I want 64bit support and a better GUI solution.
HaMM4R  +   918d ago
Cant wait! My game will be so much easier to finish with linux!

Fantastic! Unity is a fantastic engine for indie devs like myself!! Love the flash support too!
