Today was an amazing day for me at the Unite Nordic conference in Malmo, Sweden. I was able to attend the keynote session where Unity CEO David Helgason announced that they are making their mobile tools free to indie developers and small studios!
Unity is a leader in game development with just shy of two million developers using the tools. Now with this announcement, Unity is making it easy for any developer to bring their games to mobile devices – including the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 smartphones – and the upcoming BlackBerry Q5 smartphone.
At the keynote, David spoke about how, as game developers, we’re just at the inflection point of mobile and how mobile is surpassing other platforms in adoption. There have been many games that have proven that mobile is a profitable platform, but there is much room to grow.
Take a look oat David’s Video Announcement:
Our booth at the conference was bustling with activity. Game developers were intrigued by the BlackBerry 10 platform and we had many conversations on how they could use Unity to get their apps onto the platform.
We encourage you to take advantage of the Unity open beta for BlackBerry 10!
