Unity Developers


The Unity game engine was developed by Unity Technologies and released in 2005. With the release of Unity, the founders of Unity Technologies sought to “democratize” game development. Unity has become popular because free versions are available for aspiring developers, it can be integrated with key game development tools (such as graphics tools), and it can be used to create content for more than 25 platforms. According to Unity Technologies, 50 percent of games (average PC/console/mobile), and 60 percent of augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) content is powered by Unity. Other popular game engines include Unreal Engine, Amazon Lumberyard, and CryEngine. Some design companies create their own proprietary game engines.
