    And apparently iOS games can be ported using some free software.

    Hopefully this will bring unity between devs and Nintendo.

    The CASUAL game engine for the CASUAL console ;o;

    I'm just kidding although it's nice to see a free engine to promote production.

    So this is basically an SDK for the Wii U's Internet Browser?

    And they're not calling it Wii Unity?

    What a wasted opportunity.

    They have software to convert any iOS app into a web app? I'll believe it when I see it. Seems a little far fetched for me.

    Erm...they have "an xCode iOS app" you want to run on "nintendo", then "they will convert it for you". It doesn't say any, it doesn't say web app, and it doesn't say free either.

    Or are you refering to another source than the one from the OP? :unsure:


    Still...it sounds like good news. :)

    unity - for those who have not heard about it, its an amazing engine that allows you to make games easily and will little coding. graphics are almost totally handled for you by the engine.

    it can publish/build apps for mac, pc, ios, android, ps3, xbox live and web using the same program.

    for those who wanna make games and don't know where to begin, this is it.

    I see it gaining a lot of publicity these past few weeks.

    The last tweet in that screenshot clearly says Javascript and CSS i.e. web technologies i.e. web app. And I made no mention of free either ;) [but in actual fact, the last tweet in the screenshot does say free]

    As for the "xcode iOS app" thing; are all native iOS apps not built with xcode? AFAIK, xcode is just the name of the development suite for Mac OS, which is used for (amongst other things) compiling all iOS apps if I'm not mistaken.

    Fantastic, I hope the framework will someday support the 3DS. Also, is there any documentation on how the framework will be distributed?
