Reflector Entertainment Partners with Unity Technologies as Exclusive Creative Platform Partner
“Companies Dedicated to Pioneering the Next-Generation of Entertainment”
Reflector Entertainment, the recently-launched studio committed to creating next-generation content for a global audience, today announced a partnership with Unity Technologies, author of the world’s most popular creation engine for gaming and interactive entertainment. Reflector collaborates with creative luminaries — like Unity — to bring to life game-changing universes that innovate, resonate and revolutionize the entertainment experience across today’s rich media landscape. The deal was announced today by Alexandre Amancio, Co-founder, CEO of Reflector Entertainment.
“The Reflector team and I have been hard at work on our first two Storyworlds and can’t wait to get them out to the fans. I’ve been watching Unity for years now, and am very impressed with their commitment to creators and how they’re gearing up their engine and toolset to support high-end cross-media content creation – they’ve certainly managed to keep their eye on the future. We are eager to take advantage of Unity’s brilliance and build our brand of magic on top of their amazing platform.” said Amancio.
Reflector Entertainment collaborates with top content creators from a variety of media to build Storyworlds – platform agnostic universes with compelling characters and expansive mythologies – allowing fans to carve their own path through deep, evolving cross-platform narratives.
Unity exists to democratize development, solve hard problems and enable success — three core values that are the driving forces of Unity’s adoption by millions of creators. Unity powers more than 50% of all new mobile games and nearly 2/3rds of all AR and VR content. Unity’s “build once, publish anywhere” foundation empowers creators to bring their content to 25+ platforms, and interactive content made with Unity reaches nearly 3 billion devices worldwide. Unity recently released Unity 2017.1, which is the start of a new cycle that evolves the world’s most popular game engine into an ever-expanding creation engine for gaming and real-time entertainment. Unity 2017.1 focuses on helping teams work together more collaboratively by equipping artists and designers with two powerful new visual tools: Timeline and Cinemachine.
