Microsoft and Unity3D have this week announced a partnership that will make it easier for all inspiring developers to bring games and apps to life, especially on Microsoft’s platforms.
This new agreement brings optimizations for Microsoft’s latest platforms to Unity’s development environment (Windows 8.1, Windows Phone and Xbox One). Unity Pro licensed developers will receive free access to the ‘Windows Store Add-on’ which includes support for Windows Store apps and Windows Phone 8 apps.
Starting life as an OS/X game development tool in 2005 Unity has grown into a highly advanced multi-platform game development environment. Version 4.1 was released in March, version 4.2 is now in testing and includes all of the latest optimizations for Microsoft’s platforms.
