Unity Technologies, creator of the Unity development platform and host of the annual Unite development conference, has announced that CEO of Schell Games, Jesse Schell, will give the keynote at this year's event.
The conference, which takes place 10-12 November in Old Montreal, and follows the Montreal International Game Summit. 2010 is the fourth year in which Unite has taken place.
Schell is an author and regular speaker on game design, and a strong advocate of the Unity platform. Schell Games is currently using Unity to develop The Mummy Online, an MMOG in partnership with Universal and Bigpoint.
"I've been dreaming for years about a ubiquitous 3D solution for web browsers, and Unity is that solution. It's changing the face of online game development, and we're just at the beginning of what is possible," said Schell.
Events at Unite 2010 include hands-on labs, tech sessions and networking events for Unity developers and publishers. Discount tickets for the event are available until 10 September, and Air Canada have organised a discount airfare rate to Montreal for a limited number of early bookers.
