Unity is certainly getting more and more popular, and with the (limited time) release of Unityunity3d1 iOS and Android for free, the number of people interested in Unity is sure to rise.  Along with the increase in popularity of Unity, there has been an influx of Unity books.

 

 

Therefore I put together this post to compile all of the books and their primary details into a single page.  This makes picking out which book to buy/read as easy as possible.

 

 

Hope you find it useful.  I am trying to keep this post as comprehensive as possible, so if I missed a book or made a mistake, please let me know!

Title pretty much says it all, Unity 4 is now available.  Not a huge shock given the beta release announced two weeks ago.

 

The key new features are:

  • Direct X 11 rendering
  • New target platform: Flash
  • New target platform: Linux
  • Updated image effects including
    • New water shaders and prefabs
    • Render to texture effects
    • Full screen effects such as Depth of Field, Color correction, lens effects, etc. (Pro only)
  • Shuriken particle system
  • Lightmap Baking
  • Mobile profiler (Pro only)
  • Cross platform font rendering
  • Hardware cursor api
  • New project browser with fast integrated search

 

Unity Pro is priced at 1500$.

Unity “Base” is still free.

iOs, Android and Flash are each 400$.  Linux appears to be included in the base package.

No details given on upgrade pricing.

My personal 2cents, it doesn’t really look like a full version upgrade to me.  The new targets were announced in 3.x, at first glance I’m not really seeing any reason to upgrade.  What do you think?
