OTEE has released
Unity 1.1.1, an update to their game development platform targeted at medium to small game developers. It’s a free update for registered users.
Unity can be used to create 3D games, and has been used to develop Ambrosia Software’s casual 3D game Gooball. It was also the technology used in OTEE’s recent Dashboard Widget Challenge, which yielded more than a dozen free widget games.
Unity 1.1.1 now includes a complete “Racing Game Tutorial” which demonstrates how scripting can be used in the development environment. Documentation has been augmented, as well. Alias’ Maya 7.0 file import support has been added, and OTEE reports improvements to stability, quality and performance. File importing is now supported for Cheetah3D v2.4, shader quality has been improved, especially on low end cards, and more.
Unity is available in US$249 “Indie” and $999 “Pro” forms; the Pro version adds the ability to publish to Windows, render to texture effects, secured deployment, and direct access to OpenGL.
