Unity, a development platform for creating multiplatform 3D and 2D games, has today finally been released for Linux as a 951Mb .deb file download. This is an Experimental Build, with future support not yet guaranteed and very much depends on user adoption and feedback.
Today’s build is based off Unity 5.1.0f3 and comes with the ability to export to the following runtimes:
- Linux, Mac, Windows Standalone
- 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 or newer (just like our player, the editor will run on most ‘modern’ 64-bit Linux distributions, but official support is only provided for 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 or newer)
- Modern Nvidia, AMD, or Intel graphics card with vendor-supported graphics drivers
