Unity developers come up with experimental build of devtools for Linux




The Unity Editor has received a Linux port. The build is experimental and officially requires a 64-bit version of Ubuntu 12.04 or later, but should still run on most modern Linux systems. A recent GPU from Intel, Nvidia or AMD is also required.

The Unity editor- build for Linux is based on Unity 5.1.0f3 and supports exporting runtimes to Linux, Mac, Windows Standalone, WebGL, WebPlayer, Android, Tizen and SamsungTV. Na’Tosha Unity states that future support is not guaranteed, and that “you determine use and feedback for us whether this version is capable of life alongside our Mac and Windows versions.”

Unity Compared with OS X and Windows, Linux has fewer tools for game development. Epic Games today does provide a Linux version of the Unreal Engine 4 Editor, and Steam does the same with his Source SDK. Also Stencyl and Ogre have Linux versions of their SDKs.
