Unity releases tool bundle for serious game devs
July 31, 2012 | By Eric Caoili

Newsbrief: Game engine maker Unity Technologies has released a new "MS&T Bundle" meant to meet the needs of serious game developers with a single package.

Unity notes that developers in the Military Simulation and Training field -- many of which create games with purposes beyond entertainment -- have used its tools for some time now to create a variety of applications and serious games.

This new bundle, though, is designed to provide those clients with access to all of Unity's mobile and web platforms, as well as Geographic Information Systems and Digital Terrain Elevation Data support.

The MS&T Bundle includes Unity Pro for PC/MacWeb deployment, iOS Pro, Android Pro, Flash Pro, Unity Team Server, Unity GridFloat GIS Importer, and the ADL SCORM Scoring Package.

MS&T in this context likely means "Military Simulation and Training".

It says right in the article, Materials Science and Technology

Actually Joshua is correct here. "MS&T" in this context stands for either "Military Simulation and Training" or "Modeling Simulation and Training." Both definitions are broadly used in the so-called "Serious Games" market to encompass Simulations, Virtual Worlds, Serious Games ect.

Acronym arguments and alliteration aside...

I'm anxious to see if the GIS and SCORM solutions are as convenient as they're selling it to be.

I also find it interesting... Unity has a pretty firm grip on the independent and small-studio game developers. Are they making their move to get into the "big business" government contractors' radar? Last I heard, Unreal was the big player in the gov/mil world.
