testing the waters
in April to see if there was sufficient interest, Over the Edge (OTEE) has announced
Unite 2007, a conference for users of the Unity game engine. It will take place Oct. 10 – 12, 2007 at the San Francisco Film Center in the Presidio, in San Francisco, Calif.
Unity brings 3D game development and simulation-building to the Macintosh. It enables developers to make games that can be deployed on Mac OS X, Windows, Wii and the Web using a rich visual interface; it’s been used to create commercial games, educational tools and more.
Unite 2007 is a three-day technical conference to offer attendees a chance to learn more about Unity and the Unity Web player directly from the experts. Developers, artists, producers and anyone else interested in Unity is encouraged to come.
Events planned for the show include a keynote and road map presentation; eight 1-hour technical sessions on topics ranging from shading and shadows to physics and multiplayer game development; eight hours of hands-on lab time where attendees can work one-on-one with OTEE engineers; and social networking events.
Registration is open now, and early-bird discounts run through August 10, 2007.
