Unity 4.2 released: build a better game, get a chance to win big, more than $100,000 in prizes

 

If you’re a Unity developer, we’ve got great news. Unity and Microsoft announced a new collaboration at last month’s Build Conference, and to celebrate we’re sponsoring a game-building contest with big cash and prizes for the winners.

Submit your most impressive, awe-inspiring, addictive or just plain fun game — something you’ve just developed, or a game you’ve already put out there – and you could walk away with a pretty sweet reward. More than $100,000 in prizes will be awarded overall *.

The new collaboration was highlighted today with the release of Unity 4.2. This includes a Windows Store add-on that brings the Windows Store and Windows Phone 8 platforms to all Unity developers. The add-on is available in the free version of Unity, or as a free add-on for the Pro version – making it easier for all Unity developers to bring 2D and 3D content to Windows games.

So don’t waste a moment to get going on your entry. The Unity beta program started a few months ago, giving early adopters a head start – more than 50 titles have already been published for Windows Phone.  Check them out here.

Show us your stuff. Get creating, start building or porting your game, then enter it here.
We’re rooting for you – because some very talented, very lucky developers are going to be showered in more than $100,000 in prizes very soon!
