2015 Unity Awards nominees announced

Plenty of excellent games are on the slate for the engine's annual award show; statues will be handed out this month in Boston, at the Unite conference.

Unity's Unite conference brings together its development community to disseminate new information about its toolset and exchange lessons on making games in Unity. The company also hands out its Unity Awards, which recognize the best games produced with the engine in the prior year.
