Unity, Wii game creation

OTEE today announced that users of its Unity game development tool will be able to create games for the Nintendo Wii console later this year. Unity is an integrated development tool that makes standalone games for PC as well as Mac systems that users can play in any modern Web browser. The software combines game engine technologies such as optimized and extensible graphics and rendering effects; PhysX by Ageia; JIT-compiled JavaScript and C# scripting APIs; flexible and fast character animation support; high- and low-level networking capabilities, and dynamic game worlds that enable developers to modify each object and texture on the fly. Unity is priced at $250 for an indie license or $1,500 for the pro version. Both editions require Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.

Unity supports various art packages including 3D modeling applications, as well as image and audio tools. The software also offers native support for Maya, Cinema 4D, Blender, and Cheetah3D with support for numerous interchange formats such as FBX and Collada.
