Unity at GDC 2014

March 11, 2014 in Events by

The annual celebration of everything game development is upon us again! The Game Developers Conference is a big show for Unity and this year we’ll have a bigger presence than ever.  Our main Unity Technologies booth (#1402) is snuggled in between our friends at Sony and Nvidia at the front of the show floor with the Unity Games booth (#1416) right behind us.

Our goal at GDC is always to give attendees a good look at Unity’s present state and future ambition. We’ll have plenty of staff on hand at our booths to answer questions and take you through demos of some of the upcoming features our community can look forward to. This, of course, includes the much anticipated new Unity GUI. We’ll also be showing some of our upcoming platform tools, so drop by and see the goodies!

As usual, we’ll also have an awesome games pavilion showing off the wide variety of genres, platforms and art styles. This year’s participants include games like Aztez, Assault Android Cactus, CounterSpy, Deadcore, Dead Trigger 2, Dungeons of the Endless and Endless Legend, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, The Golf Club, Monument Valley, Night in the Woods, World Zombination and more.

The Unity booth will also feature our partner pavilion that includes companies ranging from console giants to Asset Store publishers, and everyone one of them has something interesting to offer the Unity community. This year, you’ll be able to meet with BlackBerry, EveryPlay, Exit Games, Imagination Technologies, Geomerics, Kii, Leap Motion, Meta, Microsoft, Nintendo, Qualcomm (Vuforia), Samsung, Simplygon, Sony Computer Entertainment, Unity VS, and Xsens. While you’re in the booth, make sure to stop by and say hi to them.

While you’re there, drop your business card off to sign up to receive email communications from Unity and enter a drawing to win one of the following prizes; Xbox One, Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, Sphero Robot Ball, Meta0.1 Developer Edition glasses, Unity Pro Licenses and more!

We will also have a Unity Games booth this year, located immediately behind the main Unity booth. There, you’ll be able to find the Unity Games team, check out some of the recently released and upcoming titles such as Space Noir, The Last Tinker, Freeride Ski Cross, Archangel and Rube Works. And while you’re there, don’t forget to take part in special “Up Your Game” sessions intended to help indie developers hone their pitches.

We’ll kick the show off for Unity with our Dev Day sessions that cover everything that’s exciting and important in Unity. If you miss Dev Day, we’ll also have in-booth sessions from a variety of Unity employees, partners, and friends. Take a look at our GDC page for all of the details and then stop by and say hi!

The Unity Team

I see that Geomerics is also in your list.
Does that mean that Unity 3D will soon support real-time global illumination ?

I’m so excited for this!

Will there be videos posted of the scheduled sessions on Unity or GDC Vault for those of us who cannot make it to GDC 2014 in person?

I hope they will not announce coming of Unity 5.0 and tell us to buy new licenses.

Last year I was new with Unity and just starting work on a fairly big game for a single-person developer. This year I’m returning with a nearly-finished game — same one!

I’m looking forward to learning more, seeing people again that I met briefly last year, and hopefully showing off (impressing people with?) my game!

@DAMIAN & @RODOLFO Our talks won’t be recorded, sorry about that.
