Hi,

It is a game engine and I think it is easy to use and can export to Flash. Why isn't there any decent game in 3D yet?

Regards

I don't know anything about Unity, so I can't completely answer your question, but I've heard Unity is limited with smaller stuff, much like flash games. Maybe it's only being used for complex stuff?

I don't think it is only used for complex stuff, here are some examples they made:
http://unity3d.com/contest/flash-in-a-flash
The winner game is made by only one person in a week, IIRC, and if you consider that complex then its quality is good, too, a 3D flying plane game. You should try it, a simple short game but it is good.

It seems unity use javascript to control the flash which is not accepted by flash sites like armorgames, am I right? And it seems they are fixing it.

Here are some flash demo by unity, I just googled them:
http://www.stimunation.com/previews/labs/unityToFlashExport/unityFlashShadowDemo/

http://www.molehillgaming.com/game/unity-angry-bots

It has source code in unity page, you can try to tweak it and export to flash. I am also learning unity, and I was surprised that when I googled unity and armorgames it didn't show many results

I think one of the main reasons developers tend to shy away from Unity (or at least, developers of AG don't use Unity) is because it's not very compatible with a lot of computers. It may run, but it lags a lot for a lot of people, and if you have it open for anybody to play, generally you'll want it to be playable for those people. Ironically, I've heard that IE works best with Unity, which is probably the least compatible browser with AG from past experience. Opera might be good too, but generally on the average computer you'll get a lot of input lag which practically ruins the game. You could tell everyone to use Opera since it hardly lags at all, but you'll still get down-rated a lot.

That's mostly why you won't see one on here. Sky9 Games mentioned that they *might* make a game in Unity, but the chances of seeing it on AG is very slim.

Keep in mind the Flash exporting is only a preview and will later be turned into a fully seperate Unity add-on. Which is to say it'll cost 400 dollars just for the basic module.

Actually, I know for a fact that King's Bounty and Crazy Fairies are both Unity games. Sure, that's not a whole lot, but it means things are slowly being added.
