VILNIUS, LITHUANIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 -- Leading global game developer Game Insight is announcing its participation with Unity Technologies at Gamescom 2014 in Cologne, Germany on August 13-17. At the Unity booth (Hall 04.1, B-030), Game Insight is presenting its latest and upcoming games Dragon Warlords, Running Shadow, X-Mercs: Invasion, and Tank Domination, which are all powered by Unity's development platform.

For Game Insight, choosing the Unity toolset has many definite advantages over other technologies used in mobile app development. "Since the technical hurdle of supporting every platform is handled by Unity right out of the gate, it is straightforward to fulfill our commitment to providing a truly cross-platform experience, pause on one device, pick up and play on another, which is fast becoming an expectation that we are happy to meet for our players," said Anatoly Ropotov, CEO of Game Insight. "Further, by diligently adding new and emerging platforms, Unity opens doors for us to explore expansion to game consoles."
Antony Douglas, Vice President EMEA, Unity Technologies, commented on the partnership, "Game Insight has a bold vision for multi-platform, high-quality, 3D gaming. We're delighted they chose Unity to realize this vision and are excited to develop the tools that will make their vision a reality."
As Game Insight adds to its repertoire the development of high production value games thus meeting the growing demand from its players as more powerful devices become the norm, the company is turning to Unity's excellent toolset to efficiently build an entire product line-up of outstanding 3D titles. All things considered, the partnership between Unity Technologies and Game Insight is a natural fit for its expansion into hardcore 3D gaming.

Running Shadow is a unique mix of a runner and fantasy RPG with exciting quick time battles. Thanks to Unity's performance, Game Insight was also able to introduce procedural level generation, making the game experience endlessly varied. In addition to reducing costs of targeting not only Android, iOS and Amazon, but Android TV, as well, Unity eased the process of implementing an alternate control scheme for gamepads.

X-Mercs: Invasion is a fascinating turn-based strategy, in which players gather a team of professional fighters to drive off an alien invasion, build a futuristic military installation, research sci-fi technologies and develop deadly new weapons to use in intense battles with mutants, aliens and other baddies. With Unity's built-in editing program, the development team was able to create awe-inspiring 3D levels with partially destructible environments for this turn-based strategy. Also worthy of mention is the ease with which Unity enabled intricate camera work and the creation of complex cutscenes in X-Mercs: Invasion.

Dragon Warlords is a new mobile multiplayer 3D strategy game set in the medieval fantasy world of Adan, the world players know from Game Insight's hit cross-platform MMO, Dragon Eternity. Players build an impregnable castle with defensive towers and repel raids by other players. The performance of the Unity runtime allows a great number of 3D character models to appear in one game scene, allowing battles in Dragon Warlords to reach a fever pitch.

The first tank combat simulator MMO for mobile devices, Tank Domination puts players in control of more than 30 types of the most modern military weaponry, including artillery, and features 10 vs. 10 PvP battles. Unity enabled the creation of vast open landscapes with partially destructible environments to enhance the intensity of PvP tank battles in Tank Domination.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
