Unity 3D is unlike any video game engine I have seen. Many previous engines have tried to capture eager game designers’ attention, but most failed or were not engaging enough. Unity Technologies manages to sway millions of new and veteran customers with its Unity 3D engine.

The tool is cross platform and mainly used for game development. Unity offers many features such as rendering, a built-in editor, support of third-party assets, 2D game development and real-time editing. New customers can also publish their game on various platforms such as PC, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Nintendo Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3 and 4, and Playstation Vita.

Unity offers a huge amount of resources for new users. The official Unity 3D website has documentation and tutorials to get everyone up to speed. It uploads monthly or bi-monthly live sessions that teach people interesting tricks when using Unity

At first, I did not want to use Unity. My No. 1 fear was scripting. I had done some coding in the past and remembered the pain of small errors or forgetting a simple syntax. The scripting part later erased my fear and I began loving it again.

After spending at least two weeks with Unity, I managed to make a very simple video game by following beginner YouTube videos. The game was later published via Unity Web Player and ported to Sony Playstation Vita through Sony’s Playstation Mobile software. I felt happy playing it on a gaming console without much hassle.

Video game developers quickly adopted the engine after its release.

Nintendo recently announced a partnership with Unity Technologies to allow license distribution between in-house, third party and other developers.

Activision Blizzard also used Unity 3D for their popular card game “Hearthstone.”

More games are being created and announced everyday.

Unity 3D has evolved into a mainstream video game engine since its debut.

I recommend Unity for being user friendly and easy to developed video games without little or no skills.
