Unity’s Flash export feature praised


Skive's Ben Pitt reckons Unity's Flash export will be a big deal for the future of online gaming

On the blog of independent digital creative agency Skive, games developer Ben Pitt says that everything just changed regarding Unity and Flash. Whereas the two technologies once had clear separation and specialisation, Pitt reckons Unity’s upcoming ‘Export to Flash’ feature will lead to more developers shifting to Unity for online games development; however, this isn’t bad news for Adobe, because the knock-on effect could be more Flash games, along with Flash interfaces and 2D components being integrated with Unity 3D projects. The move “not only redefines Unity as one of the most powerful authoring tools for Flash, but I have a feeling that it will to a certain extent redefine Flash itself,” said Pitt.
