Unity makes mobile game development tools free for small developers

updated 10:51 pm EDT, Tue May 21, 2013

Company does away with $800 base cost

Unity has announced that its mobile game development tools are now free to use for smaller developers. The Unity platform is popular amongst iOS and Android developers, but its creator previously charged $800 to publish a game to the App Store or Google Play. Under the new rules, that barrier has been lifted.

Pro packages are still on sale however, and anyone generating over $100,000 per year is required to buy one. The change may nevertheless encourage more developers to start building more complex and/or graphically intense games.
