Unity Engine is a multiplatform 3D game engine for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux (Unity 4), iPhone, Android, Xbox 360, PS3 and WiiU. Unity also supports native Google Chrome NaCl publishing. Developed by Unity Technologies, with the idea of making game development easier. The Unity development kit includes a fully fledged Physics engine, Scripting Support, Networking, Audio and Visual asset importing/management, Animation tools and more.
The Unity website provides a free version of the Unity development suite, with various restrictions on available tools and features (such as no mobile support). A pro license and various add-on licenses (such as Android, iOS and Flash support) can be purchased if desired, but are not required to distribute a game. A library of tutorials, documents and videos, as well as a few items from the asset store, are available free of charge. The Unity Engine also has a web-plugin that allows hosting of a game without the overhead of including the engine in the executable.
