Unity Editor

Unity is a user-friendly development environment for designing and programming 3D games and a 3D game engine. Scripting is done using JavaScript, C#, or Boo via an embedded Mono run time. The resulting games can be deployed as stand-alone Mac OS X or Windows applications, Web plug-ins, or as Dashboard widgets. Unity is the tool that was used by Unity Technologies to create their game Gooball, which is available from Ambrosia Software.
