Unity, an Engine for Games and Real-World Applications

Unity is an integrated environment for creating three-dimensional and two-dimensional computer games or other interactive materials, such as visualizations, simulations, consumer applications, animations and VR & AR experiences. It allows you to create applications for web browsers, desktop computers, video game consoles, mobile devices and headsets for virtual and augmented reality.

Real-World Applications

If you ever wanted to create applications beyond games, with Unity you can create augmented reality experiences, load and save data cloud storage, explore different APIs like Google Maps or Amazon Web Services.
