Unity Technologies, provider of the Unity development platform for highly interactive 3D on the web, iPhone, iPad, PC, Mac, Android, Wii™, Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3, today celebrated Unity’s fifth anniversary. Unity, launched onstage at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in 2005, is commemorating five years of steadfast leadership and relentless innovation in enabling and empowering rich 3D games for web, mobile, console and anywhere else where games and immersive experiences are called for.

"We put very polished and productive tools ahead of bleeding edge engine technology, created a very simple, clean and approachable licensing model for the masses and made an early bet on web and mobile before it was clear they would be gaming devices," said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. "In just five years since its introduction, Unity has gone from bedroom geekery to truly mainstream. We thrive on innovating and heavily reinvest in development to keep moving and growing at a radical pace so we can continue to raise the bar for innovation and continue to amaze our customers."

In early 2003 and long before the introduction of Facebook and the iPhone, co-founders David Helgason (CEO), Nicholas Francis (Chief Creative Officer) and Joachim Ante (Chief Technology Officer) had the vision of democratizing game development and enabling everyone to create rich interactive 3D which would disrupt the game engine market. They took the very complex and expensive technology required for modern, cross-platform video game development and built a powerful, intuitive suite of tools with smooth and efficient workflows around it. The result: Unity - a breakthrough development platform for creating high quality 3D interactive content including video games, training simulations and medical and architectural visualizations. Apple invited Unity Technologies to launch Unity onstage at WWDC in June 2005.

Today Unity is the #1 game engine on the market and in education, by far the leading game technology on the iPhone and iPad and the fastest growing game development platform in terms of developer mindshare. Unity powers web games for global brand names like Axe, Cadbury Crunchie, Cartoon Network, Cheerios, Coca-Cola, DC Comics/Warner Bros., Disney, Gorillaz, Iron Man, LEGO®, Looney Tunes/Warner Bros., Marvel Super Hero Squad, Pepsi and Tiger Woods. Unity also powers mobile hit games like Ravensword: The Fallen King, Samurai: Way of the Warrior, Skee-Ball, Star Wars Trench Run and Zombieville USA and training apps like Launcher Dogs for the US Military.

At the same time, tens of thousands of developers are leveraging Unity's innovations to create innovations of their own — new unique control interfaces, real-time sports broadcasting, new ways of interacting with social networks, new ways to advertise products, augmented reality games, integrated devices and many more. Two recent examples include a game made for General Mills that uses a cereal box as a game controller via a webcam; another turns the iPhone into a game controller for a web game connected over Wi-Fi.

"The team at Unity has been great to work with - they have a very similar philosophy to Google around empowering developers," said Mark DeLoura, Developer Advocate, Games, Google. "Unity recognizes that the wider the reach of their platform, the more valuable the technology is to game developers. It's valuable for independent developers who are trying to reach the largest audience possible with a tight budget, and it's valuable for large studios who are trying to keep down development costs so they can outshine their competition and produce the best big-budget blockbuster that they can."

"I continue to believe that 3D content will be the next big event on the web. Unity is perfectly placed to make that a fast and easy experience for developers that will ultimately delight customers with a much higher fidelity experience,” said David Gardner, London Venture Partners GP and one of Electronic Arts' first employees. “The team at Unity has delivered a great platform which has now reached critical mass with the development community. It is battle tested with major brands successfully launching content via the internet. With new devices such as the iPad making it so easy to have a great visual experience, the demand for 3D content will skyrocket."
