Unity Support & New Game Filters! 2014-09-17 11:33:13
Newgrounds has had Unity support for a while now but it was a workaround using our HTML5 upload system; you dropped your unity3d file in a ZIP with an index.html and our system loaded it in an iframe. It wasn't very convenient.
This is finally fixed! You can now upload your unity3d file directly, the same way Flash devs upload an SWF.
As an example I uploaded a Club a Seal game I was working on with MindChamber back in 2009.
If you have an existing Unity game on NG, you could try replacing the ZIP version with a direct build. Please let us know if you experience any problems! NOTE: Regular visitors may need to Shift+Refresh the view page or clear their cache.
There were a lot of Ludum Dare 30 games made with Unity and hopefully this encourages more devs to share them on NG. Be sure to enable rev share under your account page, we're getting some great CPMs on the pre-roll ads at the moment!
Also we have new filters that aren't linked yet from the Games hub but will be soon:
If you've made a touch-friendly html5 game, be sure to check the box for "Touchscreen friendly" in your project settings. Click "Edit" next to your ZIP file to bring up advanced settings.
Everyone thank PsychoGoldfish for these updates.
Tomorrow is Throwback Thursday so be sure to check in!
Monday is Madness Day and there are prizes.
Also, you can upload anything scary / horror or Halloween-themed during the month of October and tag it with "halloween2014" to be part of our Halloween Spooktacular! There's prizes for that too, for movies, games, art and music.
