Unity 1.6.1 released

OTEE today released Unity 1.6.1 as a free update to the 3D Web and standalone game development tool, allowing developers to greatly improve the gaming experience in the browser. Unity includes a physics simulation engine as well as graphics and rendering effects that are on par with the newest games on the market, according to OTEE, and the new release can stream compressed audio from the Web as well as lock the mouse to provide an improved interactive Web gaming experience. Unity 1.6.1 is available as a free digital download to current Unity 1.x customers, and is priced at $250 (Indie edition) or $1,500 (Pro edition) for new customers. Unity requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

"Unity provides the only cross-platform browser plugin which is able to do modern 3D graphics," said OTEE CEO David Helgason.

Unity creates games compatible with Windows Vista, and supports full integration as well as interaction with Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, and Camino on Windows as well as Mac OS X.
