Kontagent Releases Full Support for Mobile Game Developers on Unity 3D Game Engine
SAN FRANCISCO, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Kontagent, the leading global user analytics company for social and mobile apps, now offers full support to studios that are developing mobile games on the Unity game engine. With the expansion of Kontagent’s mobile SDKs to support Unity, Kontagent simplifies the implementation process for Unity developers who want access to Kontagent’s analytics solution.
Unity Technologies is the creator of Unity, an intuitive and flexible development platform used to make wildly creative and intelligently interactive 3D and 2D content. The “author once, deploy everywhere” capability ensures developers can publish to all of the most popular platforms. Unity Technologies boasts a thriving community of 800,000 registered developers including large publishers, indie studios, students and hobbyists.
“We know developers are looking for ways to build highly engaging mobile games and we are always trying to find ways to help our customers be more productive,” said Fredric Newberg, CTO at Kontagent. “Unity has enabled developers worldwide to create amazing 3D video games. Now that Kontagent supports Unity, developers can also easily get the metrics they need to constantly improve those games and keep their players coming back for more.”
This new capability allows mobile game developers to simply use a Kontagent plug-in for the Unity SDK. With minimal effort, developers can quickly integrate Kontagent’s API and get access to the analytics that Kontagent provides, including metrics such as average session lengths and user lifetimes.
“Game design analytics can be a powerful tool to fine tune games,” said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. “We’re pleased that a leading analytics solution such as Kontagent’s kSuite now supports Unity.”
Newberg adds, “We added Unity support so that developers can better manage their time and resources, focusing on doing what they do best: building best-in-class games for the expanding mobile audience.”
The detailed insights into user behavior provided by the kSuite platform enable developers to tune their game or other app design to hold users’ attention and maximize their in-app purchases, such as in-game virtual goods, in today’s increasingly competitive landscape.
