The Unity platform has quickly become a very popular engine for game development for the web and iPhone. Next up: Android. And the 3D game engine middleware and tools may be becoming relevant on higher-end platforms like PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as well, as the team at the company readies these platforms for inclusion in the latest version of the tech.
Two weeks ago, the company released Unity 3, which includes many new features -- notably among them, a new default project called Boot Camp. It also includes enhancements to its lighting, audio, and other systems aimed at making it more of a viable choice for high-quality 3D projects.
Now serving 200,000 users, according to the company, the five year-old Unity engine has benefited enormously in recent years from the explosive growth in browser, social, mobile and online game development.
