This week Canonical is sponsoring a developer session at Unite 2012 to share how easy hundreds of thousands of Unity developers can now bring their games to the Ubuntu Software Center. Unite is the yearly conference for the Unity community with hands-on demonstrations, educational seminars and keynotes about developing games with Unity and we are happy to be a part of it.

With the release of Unity 4.0, not to be confused with our Ubuntu window manager of the same name but different version number, game developers gain the ability to export to two new platforms: Adobe Flash and Ubuntu along with many other new features bringing us another release of the top choice for both independent and AAA game development.

Many Ubuntu developers might not be familiar with a game development environment that runs only on Windows or OS X but for a taste of games that have been produced with Unity here is a great gallery.

As always let us know in the comments if you have any questions and we will look for the answers at Unite and reply. If you’re a Unity Developer just learning about Ubuntu sign up now.
