Do you want to develop your own game? Not sure where to start to develop your gaming app? Do you use Ubuntu as an operating system and don't know how to best exploit its use? Are you a game developer and would like to have Unity 3D on your Ubuntu or derivative?
Well the answers to these questions and many others are enclosed in the title and in this post. Yes, because the game engine has finally been available for a few hours U also for GNU / Linux OSFor those who did not know U is a useful tool for creating 3D video games or other interactive content, such as architectural visualizations or 3D animations in real time. Unity 3D was only available for Mac OS X and Windows operating systems until a few hours ago. Games made with Unity 3D can be played on: Windows, Mac OS X, GNU / Linux, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Wii, iPad, iPhone, Android, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Wii U.
Officially nity 3D has for some time been available in a preview version for GNU / Linux operating systems and more precisely Ubuntu, but a stable version like now had never been released. Let's say that for the moment, the team behind this project has not yet decided whether there will be developments and the necessary support for the future.
This is a start, who knows if it's not the right time to encourage developers to use the Ubuntu and Unity 3D combination.
This preview of Unity 3D serves development teams as a test of the Linux community, so they can see what is the actual number of developers using their development environment over GNU / Linux systems and everything around them, as a signal of bugs, crashes etc.
The Unity 3D editor is currently compatible only with Ubuntu versions ranging from 12.04 LTS to the latest version as long as it is at 64bit. You will need to have an AMD, Intel or nVidia video card as recent as possible and the graphics drivers installed must be the proprietary ones.
By clicking below, you can download the useful.deb file to install the Unity 3D editor, which during installation will also install all the necessary dependencies, however it will be necessary to manually install MonoDevelop, which you can find in the Ubuntu Software Center.
The Unity 3D editor can also work just as well on other GNU / Linux distributions that are based on .deb packages, as long as they meet the above system requirements. The development team recommends using Ubuntu for better software compatibility with this operating system.
If you want to leave feedback or if you have answers to your questions, do not hesitate to join the official forum of the project. Obviously we at InTheBit advise you to use the forum a lot to report problems or to solve problems, in this way you make the team understand that their choice was one of the best.
For the moment this is all, keep on following us closely for other news about it. Meanwhile we await your impressions in the comments below.
