What is Unity?

Unity is a game engine developed by Unity Platforms. It's cross-platform and designed to get your vision not just up and running but also allow you to monetize it. It was initially designed for Mac OS but has expanded to over 25 other platforms, making it a flexible option for game developers. Unity3D is designed to democratize game development. Users have access to features that allow real-time graphics development in both 3D and 2D environments. It offers drag-and-drop functionality with C# integration. Game design is accessible, and new features are released regularly. The Unity Asset Store gives you access to prebuilt features, including terrain, backgrounds, and even period specific weapons you can use to build your perfect game.

If you've used Unity in the past, you learned Boo and then UnityScript, a Javascript offshoot explicitly designed for the unity editor. Now, Unity design is executed with C#. You'll need familiarity with the programming language plus any new features released in this multi-platform game engine. The user interface is relatively simple to grasp and creating your very first Unity project shouldn't require a huge startup.
