Unity-Powered Games Top Apple’s Best of 2012 List

Last week, Apple highlighted the best games and apps of 2012. If you check out the list via the App Store, you might notice that many of the games in the spotlight share a common feature: They’re powered by the Unity engine, including The Room, Apple’s pick for Game of the Year.

Unsurprisingly, Unity’s sprawling success on the App Store makes the folks at Unity Technologies as proud as a cat with kittens. “It’s incredibly satisfying to see Unity empowering so many developers to create such an incredible variety of creative and engaging titles,” said CEO David Helgason in a press release. “We’re even more proud that so many of these games are seeing such critical and financial success. Congratulations to all of the developers and thank you for making us look so good!”
