Unity 3D free for iOS/Android?
« on: March 30, 2012, 12:51:57 PM »
I just saw this at tigsource.com. It claims that Unity 3D is free for developers between now and April 8th.

Beyond looking at the Products page at their site and seeing the words "Free until April 8th" I know absolutely nothing about this at all. Maybe you already know and I am missing something.

 I know I'd love the eventual iPad version of Tidalis. You're crazy busy with AVWW now, but if this is really a "free forever if you click the button now" thing, might as well do it.

It's only their basic version, not their pro version; we follow their blog, and were aware, but thanks for bringing it up.

We require their pro version because our company has more than $100k yearly revenue (so they make you get a pro license), but also because we use pro features in how we do the rendering (for performance reasons).

Thanks for the note, though!

Heh, reminds me of the phrase that nothing good is ever free ;)
