“By gracefully combining Asset Bundle hosting and distribution with a robust release management portal, Unity saved us time and money, so we could focus on creating, shipping, and operating great games.”
Ibrahim Rageh, Head of Technology, Nifty Games
“Without CCD we would have to implement a lot of the versioning, file IDs, and environments ourselves, which did not work as well in our previous ad-hoc solutions.”
Mike Lehne, CTO, Concrete Software
