OTEE has announced that it has released Unity 1.5.1 as an update to its 3D authoring package. The Unity tool itself is available for Mac OS X, but allows Mac executables, Windows executables, and browser versions to be created in a single action from the same tool.

This latest version's primary contribution is its added support for a wide array of hardware and graphics drivers. This is in addition to the features introduced by Unity 1.5 when it was released this summer.

According to OTEE representatives, the update was made in order to offer developers the ability to create titles at a reduced cost, while offering their products to "a wide casual audience." Unity 1.5.1 is available now for free to all Unity 1.x customers.

"Some of these drivers are awfully broken, and functionality that is documented to work, doesn't", commented CTO Joachim Ante. "We spent three months working through all these issues. Working around all driver bugs we found and making them behave right without any end-user intervention."

Unity, in use by game developers such as Codemasters and Freeverse, in game design education, and amongst creative visualization professionals, is a Mac-based high-end game development tool offering extensible shaders, full-screen effects, particles, a highly optimized scripting engine supporting C#, JavaScript and a dialect of Python, the Ageia physX Engine, skinned character animation and ragdolls.
