On Wednesday at the Game Developer Conference, Unity announced the beta for Unity 4 for Windows Phone is now open! This is in addition to the open beta for Windows Store apps.

There are currently a few titles on Windows Phone that have been using the early bits of Unity. They include…

Fling Theory

Orcs Must Survive

Unity provides an easy to jump-in toolset for budding game developers and provides the rich-feature set required by seasoned professionals. Unity democratizes game development. With the addition of this support for both Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store apps, you have the opportunity to bring your game titles to Windows XP/7/8, Windows RT, and Windows Phone 8.

I, myself, am a want-to-be-game-developer and have been personally working with Unity to scratch this game development itch I’ve been fostering for many years. I am learning a ton from the recently released Tutorial Modules from Unity.
