IWP50 - Introducing Unity for Windows Phone Development

Sign in to queue

Description

UPDATE: Unity 4.2 is now available for Windows Phone. Check all details here: http://unity3d.com/pages/windows

We're excited to announce the public availability of Unity for Windows Phone!

I spoke with Microsoft Technical Evangelist Vlad Kolesnikov about how developers can get started right now building games for both Windows and Windows Phone using the Unity game developer ecosystem tools.

We first took a look at the first game in the Windows Phone store built using the Unity tools: Drift Mania Championship, (available here), and then dove right into using the tools to build a basic game.

Look for more information about all of our GDC 2013 announcements in our Official Developer Blog.

Questions?

    Will the Windows Phone support free in Unity? The addons for iOS and Android cost at least 400 dollar

    Well done! I need more information on plugins development, especially for in-app purchases and ads.

    I realize it's politically incorrect to consider a person's accent with the quality of a screencast, but some people will not watch if they cannot easily understand what's being said. I seriously don't feel comfortable saying this, but it has to be said.

    We need XNA 5.0 or FULL financial support of MonoGame by Microsoft. Unity is no match to Visual Studio for developers.

    Nice! -  but XNA 5.0 should do the same.
    Accent is nothing, the idea is everything! (to Saad Anees & Luzi - learn Russian, until it's not late Smiley )

    Siverlight, WPF, XAML, ZUNE, XNA, when will people learn, MS don't know what they're doing and have to wait for others to show them the way, pretty much like their actions on the Internet, tablets and mobiles, windows 8, NFI

    The only things they've got right
    supporting jQuery
    Supporting Unity 3d

    I reckon that is why the guy on the left is in there. To assist with presentation due to other gentlemen's (Right) accent. It's all fine.
