Prosumer engine chosen for its web player functionality

Unity has been picked as the technology to power one of Lego's latest browser games - a Lego Star Wars one, no less.

Called Lego Star Wars: Quest for R2-D2, the game was developed by Argentinian Three Melons

“The Lego Group never compromises when it comes to the quality of what is offered to our consumers all over the world," said Sten Lysdahl Sorensen, Internet Content Manager at Lego.

"Unity allows for a unique visual 3D experience that portrays our models and minifigures in a way that gives the kids a premium free online game. We firmly believe that the Unity engine and the skilled work by Three Melons is taking advergaming to a new level and thereby supporting our products in the best possible way.”

Nicholas Francis, Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Unity, added: “We are really proud to have Unity powering a Lego Star Wars game. This is a great example of how Unity is able to attract the large consumer brands and demonstrates its strength by delivering content on the web with a graphical fidelity and sheer power that no-one else can match."
