What is Unity?

A game engine

Unity is a popular, multi-platform environment designed for creating cross-platform two- and three-dimensional AR/VR applications and mobile, console, and virtual reality games – and other interactive materials, such as animations and visualizations. It is valued for the possibility to create 3D graphics with relatively little work in a simple way, without extensive programming knowledge needed.

A variety of tools

With Unity, you can build your app or game once and deploy it to 25+ leading platforms, such as iOS, Android, Windows, Linux, PlayStation, Xbox One, or NintendoSwitch. Unity provides a set of tools – plugins, assets, libraries – the vast majority of which can be found on platforms, such as GitHub, Bitbucket, and the Unity Asset Store. Games created in Unity can also run in web browsers thanks to the Unity Web Player plugin.

Why you should consider Unity

Popularity

Around half of the mobile games on the market and 60% of augmented reality and virtual reality apps is built with Unity. This gives you access to a large pool of developers.

Cross-platform

Unity is a well-built engine that works impeccably on both iOS and Android – but also on 25+ other platforms. With one code-base you can deploy your apps on different platforms.

Low entry-level

Unity is accompanied by a variety of tutorials and a dedicated learning platform with 750 hours of learning content.

Many languages

The engine works with C# but you can also use many other languages, such as C++, Python, or Java for development. You choose your preferred language.

Operating systems

Unity is compatible with various operating systems (Windows, Linux, etc.) and devices, such as Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, or Windows HoloLens.

Fast prototyping

Due to its approach to objects and built-in classes it works great for quick prototyping of games, apps, and other interactive experiences.

A large community

A large community around Unity with its rich knowledge base and guidelines allows finding ready solutions for common errors right away.

UI responsiveness

Unity allows to define the arrangement, scaling, and behavior of containers from the editor level easily.

ML-Agents module

The resources available in the ML-Agents module reduce the barriers faced when creating machine learning applications.

Free for small companies

Unity is free for small and medium-sized companies with gross annual income below $100,000.

Easy debugging

A built-in profiler enables bottlenecks finding.

Features of Unity

For free*

Unity is a popular real-time development platform that can be used for free by small organizations, with less than $100k of revenue or funds raised annually. It is sold in a subscription model, plans based on the revenue generated. Unity provides a set of tools, such as assets and plugins, the majority of which can be found on GitHub, Bitbucket, the Unity Asset Store, and other similar platforms. Creators can also develop and sell their assets via Unity Asset Store. Unity is royalty-free to distribute your apps.

3D graphics

This multi-platform environment provides its users with the ability to create games and other experiences in 3D. Three-dimensional graphics can be built with a relatively small amount of work in an easy way without extensive programming knowledge needed thanks to in-built functionalities and tools available. Compared to other engine environments the quality of graphics simply stands out.

Cross-platform

Unity is a very well-made engine that works perfectly on 25+ platforms. It means that you can build your app once only and then deploy it wherever you find commercially justified. Unity is compatible with various operating systems and platforms, such as iOS, Android, Windows, and Linux. It is a perfect solution for mobile apps, AR and VR content, desktop games, or console games.

Compatibility

The engine supports natively C# programming language but you can use other languages as well, such as C++, Python, and Java in the form of libraries. C# is a managed language, which means it does the memory management automatically. As mentioned above, Unity is compatible with various operating systems and devices (such as Chromebook or Mac).

Easy debugging

With a debugger, you can inspect the source code while your game or app is running. No matter which code editor you use (Visual Studio, Jetbrains Rider, etc.), they all provide essential functionalities such as breakpoints and variable inspection. In Unity, managed code debugging works on all platforms apart from WebGL.

ML applications

The resources available in the ML-Agents module reduce the barriers faced by the developers of machine learning applications. Using Unity you can create responsive and intelligent virtual players and other, non-playable characters as well. Machine Learning Agents toolkit you can create intelligent behaviors and rich AI environments.

Benefits of Unity

With Unity, you can build high-performance games and applications – and prototype them quickly.

Low entry threshold in Unity

Low entry threshold

Unity is developing dynamically partially thanks to being beginner-friendly. Overall working on UI in Unity is easy – obviously to a certain degree. When creating standard UIs that have to meet the requirements of the majority of games, you shouldn’t encounter bigger troubles.

Unity is relatively easy to learn, with a large pool of free tutorials, its learning platform, and convenient documentation.

Unity for VR AR

Perfect for VR/AR

Unity works amazingly well not only for games. Yet another example is creating high-performance cross-platform augmented reality/virtual reality applications running on multiple AR/VR devices.

You can bring interactivity to your VR apps by just dropping components into the scene. There is no need for coding these object interactions from the very beginning.

Prototyping in UNity

​Easy prototyping

Owing to its approach to objects and built-in classes, the platform works well when it comes to prototyping. A game or app can be sketched straight away, without the need for creating the architecture.

It is particularly crucial for AR and VR application development, because we can test the concept of a chosen functionality on the device immediately. Bear in mind that rapid prototyping might result in poor project architecture.
