Unity: Unity Cloud and 2D Tools unveiled
Unity Technologies, Canadian game development tools specialists, announce Unity Cloud, a suite of online services designed to help mobile game developers of all sizes acquire new players, promote their games, and monetize their products successfully. Unity Cloud, in beta now, further levels the playing field for game development in and out of the Unity community. The initial offer of Unity Cloud services enables developers to run advertising in their mobile games, as well as exchange installs with other Unity developers, to unlock the combined power of over half a billion mobile game installs for free. Unity Technologies also unveiled new 2D tools and workflow for the Unity game engine and editor to meet increased demand for features designed to address the specific challenges of creating 2D games. The first iteration of the 2D tools, currently in beta, many of which are included in the free version of Unity, will be released with the Unity 4.3 update this fall. Importing, manipulating, and working with 2D assets are made easier with the addition of a new sprite texture importer type, automated atlasing, and dedicated 2D renderer component. Adding 2D art to a scene is as easy as dragging a sprite from the asset library into the scene where Unity will then automatically create an object. Additionally, the Unity animation editor has also been upgraded with "dope sheet" functionality and visual sprite animation editing. Finally, the specialized Box2D physics engine has been integrated into Unity. [source]
