Submit your ideas here for a chance to win amazing prizes.

Turn Visual Studio into a powerful Unity development environment. Write code more productively by leveraging all the productivity features that Visual Studio has to offer, such as IntelliSense, refactoring, and code browsing capabilities. With the free Visual Studio Tools for Unity extension, you can easily navigate, create and edit Unity scripts inside Visual Studio. It also brings the premium Visual Studio debugging experience to the Unity game engine. Identify issues quickly by debugging your Unity games in Visual Studio— Set breakpoints and evaluate variables and complex expressions. Utilize Microsoft HockeyApp to easily gain insight into application crashes through basic information about the environment (device type, OS version, etc.) and the stacktrace of the exception in both testing and live environments.

In addition, use Visual Studio Online to collaborate with your team, use tools such as the Kanban board for agile workflows, get unlimited Git private repositories, and set up continuous integration for your Unity games – all in the cloud. Build more engaging features for your games and deploy them to the cloud using Microsoft Azure.
