The Unity game engine already has a build for Linux


Unity is one of the most used engines in the world of video game developers, mainly because it is a tool that offers very important potential and combines it with a very attractive and simple interface to use on a day-to-day basis. And being Linux one of the platforms that has grown the most in recent times in video game matters, we already knew about the plans to have a version available on our preferred operating system.

Well, that day has come y there is already an experimental build of Unity for Linux, which clearly shows that the developers were serious about their intentions, and that is not even two months after the announcement and we already have a way to start testing what it has to offer us and what we can create if we have time and some desire to experiment.

Unity 5.1.0f3 is the version that comes to Linux, and offers a very complete operation although of course stability may not be its strong suit, but it will be thanks to the use and reporting of bugs that this can grow and take shape. At the moment there are good features, such as the possibility of exporting creations to the following runtimes: Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, WebGL, WebPlayer, Android, Tizen and Samsung TV.

The requirements for install Unity 5.1.0f3 on GNU / Linux they are a 64-bit system and a relatively modern Nvidia, AMD or Intel video card and with their drivers well up to date. Although the engine is compatible with practically all Linux distros, at the moment support is only intended for Ubuntu 12.04 or higher, but it is still an interesting possibility to start trying and learning about this excellent tool, which adds to the extensive list of projects that offer support for GNU / Linux.

    For me one of the most important news of this year ... because at last you can have a free development environment (it hurts that it is not 100% free) for video games based on Linux + Blender + Gimp, Inkscape, ... + Unity3D.

    Maybe with Godot if it keeps improving it may be the free alternative to Unity3D.
