1. Gaming Unity

Unity Technologies developed Unity as a cross-platform gaming engine and released it in June 2005 as a Mac OS X game engine. After all these years of development, the engine can now support desktop, console, mobile and VR platforms. The engine is particularly known for Android and iOS mobile game development. It is also quite well-known for indie game development and beginner developers prefer Gaming Unity due to its unbiased approach.

Unity effectively offers high flexibility, accurate documentation, and extremely extensible to develop any genre of game. It specifically targets the graphics APIs, namely:

  • OpenGL on Linux, Windows, and macOS,
  • Direct3D on Xbox One and Windows,
  • WebGL on the Web,
  • OpenGL ES on iOS and Android, and
  • Proprietary APIs on gaming consoles.
