Join Jonathan Sears for an in-depth discussion in this video Developing for SteamOS, part of SteamOS for Developers First Look.
…Developing for SteamOS may require tools that…are different from what you'd normally use.…So let's take a look at a couple different engines…and technologies that will enable you to develop in SteamOS.…The first one is Unity.…Unity is easily the most popular engine we're going to…talk about, primarily because it became so popular with mobile developers.…Prior to Unity, there was really no great solution for 3-D on a mobile device.…You can use OpenGL ES, but that was a lot of work,…and most developers weren't really willing to commit the time and effort.…
So let's take a look and see what platforms Unity actually supports.…So, as you can see down at the bottom,…there are quite a few platforms that Unity supports.…iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry, Windows, Mac,…and Linux, there are a few more too.…So this is a pretty great engine…if you're concerned about deploying to multiple platforms.…You can write the game once, and then make some…slight modifications for each platform, and it will work perfectly.…
