Unity launches public beta for Flash add on

New Flash Player deployment will allow Unity developers to push content through Adobe Flash Player

Development platform Unity has launched a public beta for a new add on that will allow developers to publish their content through Adobe Flash Player, doing away with the need for consumers to download extra plug ins.

"Our vision has always been to let developers take their games to as many places as possible - and Flash deployment greatly furthers that," said CCO Nicholas Francis.

"While we normally wait to ship our software until it's rock solid, the Flash publishing option is just so awesome that we had to do a developer preview. I can't wait to see where our new and existing users will now take Unity."

The beta is available to download later today at the official site.

To publicise the launch Unity has also launched a "Flash in a Flash" Creation Contest with a $20,000 grand prize for the best Flash game made with Unity. The closing date for the competition is January 5.
