Unity3D For Free


Awesome news for aspiring game designers: The Unity Indie package, formerly $200, is now free, with the pro package remaining at $1500. You'll remember I chatted with their tech lead last month after playing about with the tech. Here's the blurb: “Unity Technologies has always believed that the best technology and products should be made available to all developers. We want to accelerate the availability of high quality interactive content,“ said Unity bossman David Helgason. “With the explosive growth in new platforms and performance improvement in our Unity suite of products, we believe that there are no technical hurdles remaining for high quality interactive content everywhere. Now we are removing financial hurdles as well. Unity is mature enough and easy enough to use that it can be the entry point for those developers taking their first steps with the technology.”

And it looks like their servers are getting hammered right now.
