Develop talks to the team behind the popular engine

In today's tech feature, the team behind the Unity engine have been speaking about their plans for the future now the tool is available in a Windows version.

"It’s low cost to enter into, you don’t have call anyone and beg for a price – you can just use your credit card on the website," said Unity CEO and co-founder David Helgasson, talking up the benefits of using his comapny's technology. "You can start with one or two people and then grow as you go from prototype to full production.

"The focus of Unity is saving you time; it’s been that way for years: the automisation of importing, script recompiling on the fly, the live preview on iPhone; they’re all examples of that. It’s zero-second interaction and iteration, even when you’re working for an external platform. It’s incredibly time-saving, and it’s not just about cost – it helps you make better stuff," added the company exec.
