This thread just showed up on reddit, announcing that Unity 3D Basic for Android and iOS are being offered for free until April 8th. Considering each costs 400$, and how awesome Unity is, this is amazing news if true!
Truth is, I go to Unity’s store I get:
Then again, giving away 800$ worth of amazing software for free will cause that, no? If you haven’t used Unity in the past, now is a very good time to check it out ( well… when the site comes back online ), it is a very impressive game engine.
So, hopefully this is true, I will keep an eye on the site and hopefully it will come back online. If this is in fact true, you should jump all over it! I will update here once I confirm if this is true or not.
From Unity3d’s twitter feed:
So, unless they got hacked, this deal is looking to be very legit! I think for a great many people considering targeting iOS or Android, Unity just became a much more likely engine. Although in the grand scheme of things, 800$ isn’t all that much, it’s enough of a barrier of entry to stop many people.
Again, will update once I manage to connect to the store and see it for myself!
EDIT2: It’s Legit!
Go get it!
