Unity Asia Bootcamp Tour to Visit Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing

San Francisco, CA – March 14, 2012 – Unity Technologies, provider of the Unity multi-platform engine and development tools, today announced a series of two-day workshops in Asia to celebrate the strong development communities of the region and their rapidly increasing adoption of Unity. The three bootcamps, set to take place in Seoul (April 9-10), Tokyo (April 12-13), and Beijing (April 14-15), will provide attendees with an excellent line-up of technical and informational sessions.

“The three countries we’ve decided to hold bootcamps in this year paint an amazing and exciting picture of gaming’s history,” said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. “Japan has shaped some of the strongest and longest lasting traditions and franchises in the industry. Korea has blossomed in recent years into a powerhouse of game design and talent. China, though a relatively new territory for gaming, is growing at an exponential rate. It’s an exciting time for game development in Asia and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”

Developers from Unity’s R&D teams will conduct sessions covering more than a dozen development topics, empowering attendees with keen insight in to the engine and tools. Veteran game developers from the region will share their stories of success and intimate knowledge of development using Unity. The sessions will compliment a set of localized topics that speak to the specific development communities in each country. In addition to a full schedule of in-depth sessions, attendees will have an excellent chance to network and communicate with the creators of Unity, as well as other Unity developers in each community.

“Asia has a wonderfully diverse set of cultures and aesthetics that translate into some unique games and approaches to game development,” said John Goodale, General Manager of Asia for Unity. “We are honored to enjoy the rapid adoption of Unity in Asia and these bootcamps are to show the appreciation we have for our customers and the tremendous interest we’ve seen from developers throughout the region.”
