For those of you who weren't able to make it to Amsterdam for this week's Unite Europe conference, here's an opportunity to catch up on what the engine company has been up to for the last year, and what it hopes to achieve over the next 12 months.
Starting with the two-hour keynote which opened the event, we hear from Unity's executive management and tech teams on pricing, content, integrated services and growth, plus a look at what Unity devs have achieved in the engine's short history. Led by John Riccitiello, this is a mission statement for the firm as it approaches a much-rumoured but almost universally accepted IPO. With a re-jig on tiers and pricing on the cards, can Unity retain its indie-friendly reputation whilst also tempting investors?
At the other end of the spectrum, the roadmap and wishlist session is an hour of looking forward to what the company will be offering both free users and subscribers in the future, from the current 5.36 version to 5.4 and beyond. There's a wealth of information in this hour long talk, with plenty of specific issues and concerns addressed. A full listing of what's planned can also be found in table format here.
