Unity Technologies, a leading 3D game development tool provider, today announced it is supporting the Nintendo Wii™ console as an authorized middleware provider. The Unity game engine is the cutting-edge choice for creating visually-rich, 3D games for the desktop, Web, and leading mobile devices and video game consoles.
“Unity has streamlined the game development process with an engine that is tuned for quickly and efficiently creating and porting games to the Wii,” said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. “Unity provides the fastest iteration time, which is crucial when a developer wants to make best use of the Wii console’s innovative controllers. Developers can create rich, visually engaging 3D content through a process that is simpler and more seamless than any other tool set available — regardless of the platform.”
Unity’s game engine allows developers to create, modify and iterate on Wii game functionality with the following features:
Live Preview: The play button allows developers to instantly preview their game inside the authoring environment exactly as it currently exists, regardless of the development phase. Users can modify any object’s properties and see the results in real-time without pausing.
