Unity Technologies recently announced that sales of its Unity development platform have increased by 100% in the last six months. The company also unveiled the latest update, version 2.5.1. Unity has been used in the creation of a variety of games including Gooball and Cartoon Network's FusionFall.

David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies commented, “We seem to have struck a chord with the community, professional developers and new companies looking at ways to engage with their audience through web based games.” 

He continued, “There’s been a fundamental shift towards web based games and MMO’s which has now reached a tipping point in the west.  There’s no turning the clock back.”

License sales for Unity have increased by 100% in the past 6 months.

In addition to the doubling of its sales the company has also doubled the number of staff due and has immediate openings for an additional 20 people in the San Francisco office, across a variety of positions with more vacancies anticipated towards the end of 2009. 

The rapid rise of Unity is largely led by the vocal support of it’s customers.  From the activity in it’s forums and the number of new blogs and other web activity data suggests that the Unity community has also doubled in the past 6 six months.
