Well, sorta.

 

Autodesk just announced the Scaleform is now available as a Unity3D plugin, or as a standalone mobile200px-Scaleform_logo SDK.  More importantly, it’s available at a price tag of $295 a platform. 

 

Scaleform is used to create UIs for games using the Flash toolset, including ActionScript.  If you’ve played a game in the last year, chances are you’ve seen Scaleform in action.  It powered such titles as Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Civilizations, Warhammer 40K, Skyrim and more.  A partial list is available here.

 

Up until now, buying Scaleform has been a tricky proposition.  Autodesk had no available pricing, so you could only really get it embedded in existing game engines like Unreal, or directly negotiate with Autodesk ( can you say ouch? ). So while 300$ may seem like a look, especially considering Unity starts at 400$, it is still a massive value compared to before.
