Is it legal to sell or monetize games created with the Unity 3D free edition?

| | August 4, 2015

Is it okay to use Unity 3D programming and gaming software to create mobile game apps for Android and iOS? I am using a free version of Unity 3D and planning it to sell my current game app I’ve created by publishing it to Google Play. I also use this method for earning money by setting as a free app with ads on it.

I saw some developers relied on using free version of Unity 3D to create games and published it via App Store or Google Play. If it does, should I have to pay or share contribution to the Unity development team for earnings since I use the free version in order to rely for producing several game apps for business?

  1. From the Unity FAQ:

    Can we sell games and make money with the free version of Unity?

    Yes you can create and sell a game with the free version of Unity,
    without paying royalties or any revenue share. However, the free
    version of Unity may not be licensed by a commercial entity with
    annual gross revenues (based on fiscal year) in excess of US$100,000,
    or by an educational, non-profit or government entity with an annual
    budget of over US$100,000.

    Please also be aware that the feature set of the free version is not
    intended for the production of professional games and interactive
    content. Lastly, games made with our Pro trial licenses may not be
    distributed nor used for commercial purposes.
