Mobile games continue to establish presence in game industry
The mobile space is becoming more active in the realm of gaming. Mobile games have come to play a vital role in the overall game industry, partly due to the money these games are able to pull in. In the past, developers focused on mobile games had faced several challenges in bringing their creations to the market. Many of these challenges were rooted in the lack of tools that developers had at their disposal. As mobile games continue to show their worth, larger companies in the game industry are beginning to show more favor for this sector and provide developers with the tools they need to produce groundbreaking games.
Unity sets sights on mobile space
Unity Technologies is a powerful name in the game industry, if somewhat unknown to the general consumer. The company is responsible for the Unity game engine, which is used to power many games across many different platforms. Unity has become a very valuable tool for independent game developers because it offers a wide array of resources and formidable power, giving these developers a chance to create games that are on par with larger development studios. A large portion of the independent development scene is devoted to mobile games, and Unity has long held an interest in this sector.
Unity engine now available to independent mobile developers
This week, Unity has announced that developers using its engine will be able to publish their games to mobile platforms for free. In the past, publishing games to these platforms cost approximately $800, but Unity has determined that the thriving independent development community represents a great deal of economic promise. The company is interested in making its tools as available to the game industry as possible and expects to see a new generation of mobile games come to the market soon.
Mobile games continue to attract support in the game industry
Unity is among the most popular game engines in the game industry. Developers large and small use the engine to power a wide assortment of games. Mobile games could benefit from the capabilities of the Unity engine as it would allow these games to feature more dynamic content as well as higher quality visuals.
