Unity Has 750,000 Registered Users

News

It seems that the Unity engine is becoming quite popular. Unity Technologies, which is the company behind the development tools, has revealed that they have reached 750,000 registered developers and users. Last year, around this time, it was revealed that the user count was at 250,000 users. This is an increase of 500,000 users. A great increase in what seems to be a great game engine that is cost-effective (i.e. it is free for the basic model).

CEO David Helgason was ecstatic at the numbers in a statement he made,

“We’re amazed at how rapidly Unity continues to grow in popularity globallyThe continuing growth of the platform demonstrates that when provided with excellent tools, developers will embrace them in numbers that surpass anything anyone imagined.”

The Unity Web Player also saw an increase in installations. Last year, that number was 40 million. This year, it has doubled to more than 80 million. Unity is becoming a growing force in game technology and it seems that it is only going to get better for the company.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
