Unity is a cross-platform computer game development environment. Unity allows you to create applications that run on more than 20 different operating systems, including personal computers, game consoles, mobile devices, Internet applications and others. The release of Unity took place in 2005 and since then there is a constant development.
The main advantages of Unity are the presence of a visual development environment, cross-platform support and a modular component system. The disadvantages include the emergence of difficulties when working with multicomponent schemes and difficulties in connecting external libraries.
Hundreds of games, applications, and simulations are written on Unity that cover many platforms and genres. At the same time, Unity is used by both large developers and independent studios.
