“Beside getting our games to broader, multiplatfom audience, Unity Accelerate Solutions truly helped us take all our games to a higher level.”

“Knowing exactly what was going on under the hood, gave us better ways to analyze processes. Without Unity, we probably wouldn’t have been able to ship the Switch version.”

Frequently asked questions

How much does each consulting service cost?

We have different engagement levels, including custom packages, depending on the needs and budget of a studio. Please contact us for a full list of pricing.

I am currently a Unity Success Plan user. Does this entitle me to Accelerate Solutions services?

If you are currently subscribed to Integrated Success, you are entitled to one annual Project Review (similar to a TAC or CAP) with your subscription, a service that is delivered by our Accelerate Solutions Games team.

I am looking to have some work done but am not sure if consulting is right for my studio.

Feel free to reach out to us to discuss your project in greater detail.

If I hire Unity to do the full development for a project of mine, who owns the Intellectual Property (IP)?

You will continue to own 100% of the IP related to any projects that Unity works with you on.

I need help immediately. How soon can Unity start?

Once you reach out to us, we’ll discuss timing for when a project can be started.  Although Unity has many expert engineers, we want to make sure to match you with the right engineering teams for your specific project, which could take time to free up resources to support that.

Is there a minimum engagement time for working with Accelerate Solutions?

Yes, the shortest engagement we have is the Optimization Accelerator which lasts four days. All other consultancy engagements are a minimum of two weeks.  For co-development and custom development, minimum engagement time is typically six months.

My game has performance problems not listed above.

Unity can assist with all aspects of performance and optimization related to your game, including framerate, memory management, binary size, game/level load time, optimizing workflows, hitting specific benchmarks, adding additional polish to your game, and much more.

How does a typical engagement work?

Once you’ve reached out to our sales team and identified a need, we’ll connect you with our sales engineering team, who will review what you’re looking for in detail to determine which product and outcome is best for you.  Once mutually agreed upon, a date will be set for the kickoff of your project.

Do I need to be using Unity in order to benefit from Accelerate Solutions consulting services?

It depends on the solution that you are interested in.  Accelerate Solutions can assist you with migrating your game to the Unity engine.  In addition, the game KPIs and player experience packages that we offer are engine-agnostic and can support you regardless of the game engine that you are using.
