Once upon a time, any kind of artist who wanted to put his work in front of larger audiences typically had to go the route of a major name label to stand behind it, whether it was works of art, books, music, or even video games. But the recent digital revolution of recent years has put the power of self-supported publication in the hands of the masses, which is why there’s a need for amazingly powerful tools.

Unity 5




One such tool, Unity, was designed for the creators of high-end video games. The title, which helps creators develop their games for multiplatform distribution, isn’t for the faint of heart when it comes to the technical know-how to operate it, but it does include a fairly intuitive interface that anyone who’s spent any time in this industry will be able to self-teach.

But games that were developed with Unity had a few obstacles to overcome, namely some concerns with the ideal partner title for users to enjoy games created on the platform. Previous versions of Unity Web Player have come under attack for vulnerabilities to your data security, so that was the first thing the developers had to address in this update. While they were at it, they also added some new features and straightened out a few other bug fixes. In other words, the new version has literally dozens of bug fixes but also addresses a known issue: “Building for WebGL on Windows will fail with a sanity check error. As a workaround, Unity.exe can be launched with Administrator privileges.”

While it’s possible to consume games created in Unity without the Web Player, the 3D graphics and the speed just come through that much better with the hand-in-hand software.
