UNIGINE™ 2 is a cutting-edge real-time 3D engine for games, simulation, visualization, serious games and virtual reality systems.

There are two editions of the SDK:

  • UNIGINE Sim (designed for the Simulation and Training, Real-Time Visualization, and Virtual Reality industries)
  • UNIGINE Game (designed for the Entertainment industry)


UNIGINE all-in-one technology framework is available on a broad range of platforms:

  • Windows (XP / Vista / 7 / 8)
  • Linux (2.6, 3.x)
  • Mac OS X (10.8+)

Photorealistic Graphics

"We found the engine handled very large scenes really well while maintaining great AA and light quality."
Steve Brodie, CEO of AI3D Pty Ltd.

UNIGINE Engine has support for all the latest and greatest rendering features that hardware can provide:

  • Multiple API render (DirectX 11 / OpenGL 4.x)
  • Shader Model 5.0 support
  • Hardware tessellation with displacement mapping
  • Screen-space ambient occlusion (SSAO)
  • Real-time global illumination
  • DOF with Bokeh effect
  • Subsurface scattering
  • Cinematic post-processes

Limitless Worlds

Go beyond limits! No more boundaries for your imagination and no more loading screens. UNIGINE Engine allows for creation of worlds as big as you want them to be:

  • Double precision coordinates (instead of ordinary float precision)
  • Dynamic data streaming in the background
  • Seamless interconnection of indoor and outdoor scenes
  • Advanced LOD (level of detail) system
  • Vast terrains with geomorphing and support of hardware tessellation
  • Built-in pathfinding module

Full-scene serialization, another unique feature of UNIGINE Engine, allows for quick saving and restoration of the state of every single object in the virtual world.


Serious Games and VR

"It is an ideal framework for industrial applications and games."
Patrick Gomez, R&D Director of ACTIPLAY SA

UNIGINE Sim is successfully used in creation of highly realistic interactive simulations for consumer software products, industrial design visualizations, virtual reality systems, scientific research, military and more:

  • Multi-channel rendering (support for network clusters)
  • Full support for professional NVIDIA Quadro solutions
  • Support for 3DOF and 6DOF trackers
  • Extensive API and C++ plugin system for easy integration
  • Support for multiple output devices with asymmetric projections (CAVEs, monitor walls)
  • Stereo 3D rendering in various modes (including NVIDIA 3D Vision and Oculus Rift)
  • Support for multi-projector configurations with edge blending and non-linear image mapping

This versatile middleware is also used in various visualization and virtual reality projects.

Live Physics

Enable your 3D world to realistically interact with users using the powerful UNIGINE Engine Physics toolset. Deliver not only the look, but also the feel with a fast and robust multi-threaded physics module:

  • Collision detection and rigid body physics
  • Rag dolls
  • Various joints, motors and springs
  • Inverse kinematics
  • Deformable cloth and rope physics
  • Dynamic destruction of objects
  • Force fields
  • Fluid buoyancy and two-way interaction
  • Time reverse feature


Flexible APIs

There are several APIs to choose:

  • C++
  • C#
  • UnigineScript

Thanks to the plugin system, the engine can be easily extended via C++ plugins.

Powerful Scripting

"UNIGINE has helped us to bring to life our vision by providing powerful, easily extendable toolset along with complete scripting language."
Vinnie Reddy, CEO of BlueGiant Interactive

UnigineScript is a highly optimized scripting language used by the UNIGINE Engine:

  • Object-oriented programming
  • Fast built-in 3D math
  • Transparent interconnection with C++ code
  • Built-in debugger and performance profiler
  • More than 5000 useful functions available out-of-the box
  • Powerful high-level systems (Tracker, Syncker, Schemer...)
