[v2017.2.0] Unity – Currently most popular multi-platform 3D/2D games universal IDE

Unity (AKA: Unity3D/Unity2D, U3D for short) is currently the most popular multi-platform free game engine developed by Unity Technologies from Denmark (mainly written in C, C++ and C#, and first released in 2005). Users with C# and JavaScript programming experience can get started more quickly.

As a cross-platform and highly integrated game developing tool (i.e.: a comprehensive integration of professional game engine) that is similar to Adobe Director, Blender, Virtools or Torque Game Builder and so on interactive game development environments, Unity is designed to be a easy to use product right from the start. With it, users can easily create many types of interactive contents such as 3D video game, architectural visualization, real-time 3D animation, and more. In addition to the advantages of simple and user-friendly UI design, Unity’s features also include integrated visual editor, cross-platform release (allows you to quickly publish your game works to Windows, Mac OS X, Wii, XBOX, PlayStation, Android, iPhone, iOS, Windows Phone, WebGL, and many other platforms), terrain editor, shader, script editor, version control, and so on.

At last, if let me choose a more promising 3D & 2D game engine for mobile game, web game, console game and PC game development, I’d like to turn to Unity, rather than the similarly famous game engine GameMaker Studio which is more good at 2D game developing. Need to remind everyone, of course, Unity is not restricted to the development of 2D/3D games. In fact, it also can be used to produce fine 3D animation and so on many other types of interactive contents!
