Unity 2.5 released


I know news has been a bit quiet lately, but this is one many have been waiting for. Unity 2.5 is here! Judging by the extreme slowness of their website, it looks like the Unity website is getting hammered by many, many visitors curious to check out the latest version of the cross platform game development engine and tools.

So why were so many eager to try out Unity 2.5? Because it's now finally available for the Windows platform. There's a 30 day trial available to check out, and the licenses look pretty reasonable for indie groups (and extremely reasonable for larger commercial developers). Although it looks like exporting to the iPhone is still only available for the Mac version, there are many other platforms you can deploy to including PC, Mac, Web (requires the Unity plugin), and Nintendo Wii (requires specific license)...
