Introducing Unity Games

July 1, 2013 in Services by

Union is now Unity Games.

We’re the same team, working with the same award-winning Unity developers—we’ve just changed names to better reflect our mission to democratize games distribution. Our new name, Unity Games, more clearly reflects our passion for Unity and its ever-expanding community of talented developers.

Union has been a nexus between talented developers and technology partners keen to support games on new platforms. Our developer-focused approach has resulted in chart-topping releases on more than a half-dozen platforms and made otherwise inaccessible opportunities a reality. Like making a unicorn poop in Muffin Knight on Roku—we made that happen. You’re welcome.

All of this work continues—and more—under the new banner of Unity Games. Extending our efforts beyond emerging platforms, we’re bringing select titles to Android starting today. This is in overwhelming response to our developers whose trust and confidence in us fuels this exciting evolution. Thank you!

Of course, we’re committed to supporting all previous Union releases and more games for LG smart TVs, BlackBerry, and Tizen devices on the way. These new releases will be under the Unity Games brand. Check out UnityGames.com to learn more.

If you’re developing a game and interested in working with Unity Games, let us know. We’d love to see what you’re creating with Unity!

What benefit does Unity Games bring to publishing games on Google Play/Android other than the developer just being able to do it themselves? I tend to find Union/Unity Games in the past has very little documentation explaining exactly how they can benefit developers.

@Greg, @Nathali: Why not get in touch with unity and ask them? I’m kind of guessing they are more aimed at console distribution; but if you want to know more just get in touch with your account representetive, or email sales. I’m yet to meet an unhelpful Unity employee – I’m sure they’ll give you answers.

    @Nathali The folks at OUYA have already worked out a plug-in that supports Unity. Since OUYA runs on Android, you can deploy using Android Pro and their plug-in. It wasn’t written by Unity, so check with OUYA for more details.

    @GeorgeCook hi! Interesting that you mention console distribution, which is something Unity Games isn’t planning at this time. We’re taking things one step at a time and our new games coming to Android builds on the work we’ve done on emerging platforms like smart TVs and Roku. Consoles are exciting, though, especially with support for PS4 and Xbox One coming to Unity.

    @GregQuinn I’m always willing to share experiences and the value in Unity Games (formerly Union); in fact, I discussed a few games/stories at Unite 12 (I think there’s a video up on the website of the talk). Anyway, much of the value we provide to developers is in our access to partners. We ensured Union games were featured upon release and even secured other marketing commitments such as print and TV advertising–that work continues under Unity Games. We also handle the porting work and developers retain the largest share of revenue. For Android releases, we can help with handset compatibility, monetization, and other critical issues.

@George, I emailed ‘Unity Games’ the same question a week ago and I’m still waiting for a response. To be honest I’m not sure I’d want to work with a dsitributor/publisher that takes a week or longer to respond to an email.

Hey all.

I’m afraid that you hit “the team formerly known as the Union Team” with your questions just in time for the long Fourth of July weekend (they’re all based in the US where that is a thing). Combine that with the fact that they’re inundated with questions, and you’ll have to cut them a little slack with getting back to you.

But today (in a few hours) most of them will be back to work and replying to you.

(much love from Berlin, where Fourth of July is not a thing)

Thanks Tracy and David, looking forward to the email response, as I will definately have some more questions.

Fastidious response in return of this issue with solid arguments and telling all on the topic of that.
