Global unity: Watch the Unite 2014 opening keynote live on

This year's Unite conference will take place from August 20-22 in the gorgeous city of Seattle, and will feature guest speakers from RUST, Owlchemy Labs, Amplitude Studios, Schell Games, and Mixamo.

Of course, Unite's headline acts, Unity Founders David Helgason and Joachim Ante, will personally kick of proceedings with their keynote on Wednesday 22 August at 9am PST - or 5pm GMT

Unfortunately, not everyone has the time to take a quick trip to the US, but that doesn't mean you should have to miss out on a keynote that promises to dish out industry insight by the bucketload.

So, to make things easier for those of you stuck at home, we'll be streaming the talk right here on

If you are lucky enough to be attending this year's conference you'll probably be spending a lot of time in Seattle's Marion Oliver McCaw Hall, which features state-of-the art auditoriums, a five-story grand lobby, and well-appointed meeting spaces.

Unity hopes its clients will not only learn from the best at this year's event, but also share their own experiences, tips, and tricks with one another.

What do you call someone who has an unhealthy obsession with video games and Sean Bean? That'd be a 'Chris Kerr'. Chris is one of those deluded souls who actually believes that one day Sean Bean will survive a movie. Poor guy.
