By - | Views: 9,373
Unity3D the awesome game engine has official released 4.0 including the much requested Linux publishing support which will hopefully pave way for many more Linux titles!
QuoteLinux Deployment Preview

The Linux developer preview is already looking amazing and is helping games make their way onto one of the most open gaming platforms in the world. Rochard was recently released on Linux and demonstrates that Linux development can be very successful.


Rochard is the first Unity3D game I have played and it plays great so I am looking forward to more games made in it!

Any idea when the IDE is coming? I'd like to try making something in it, but not before this is as well.

For now, the complete list of released titles is just Rochard, Cubemen and Splice, right? I can't speak of Cubemen, but the other two work great.

I am not certain if they've said anything else.

It's funny how in their presentation video of when they were explaining they wanted to make Unity 4 have export options for Linux, they said "Oh yeah, we have been using linux for years, and it's a great system, and we love it" ...but for years they kept telling us no, that it wasn't going to happen. As for the IDE for linux, i had asked about that, and the webplayer. They never got back to me about the IDE, but they said they weren't going to make a webplayer, which alot of games already use.
