“Unity has become one of the leading forces in the game industry in a remarkably short time,” said SIEGE Conference Director Andrew Greenberg. “Its innovative tools have allowed many people to make excellent games who might not have otherwise, and we’re thrilled to offer this certification opportunity to SIEGE attendees and our thriving community.”

With the skyrocketing demand for Unity developers both within the game industry and without, the Unity Certification Program provides an invaluable resource for developers to demonstrate standard proficiency and ensure high-quality teams and products.

The exam is composed of 100 questions spanning 16 areas of competency and is intended to evaluate an individual's knowledge for a comprehensive understanding of the game production process. Question formats include multiple choice, hot spot, drag-and-drop, and matching.

Taking place in Atlanta, GA, from Oct. 6 – 9, SIEGE is the largest professional game development conference in the Southern United States.
