With the launch of Frost Technology's highly popular Unity2HTML5 Developer Partner Program, Frost announces the addition of Fourth Monkey Media to the roster of development partners who get early access to the highly sought after Unity2HTML5 GDK beta.

For us, the deep integration between Frost and Unity means that we can be up and running with HTML5 games in a few hours of development time.

"We've been inundated with thousands of requests to join the early beta program for Unity2HTML5 and while the careful selection process continues, Fourth Monkey Media stands out from the crowd" said Brian Strachan, President of Frost Technologies. He continued: " We deeply appreciate the overwhelming interest in Unity2HTML5 from the community and are prioritizing the first few partners with Unity and hard fought HTML5 publishing experience to make sure that what we are delivering adds the maximum value and exceeds expectations. Fourth Monkey Media has the HTML5 battle scars to show and they, with a number of others, will be key to helping the shape the product as we head towards the Spring launch."

Fourth Monkey Media was founded in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia by three of the region’s most senior and experienced talents. Fourth Monkey’s extensive experience includes titles with companies like Disney Imagineering, Leap Frog, Spil and 3G Studios.

HTML5 game publishing is about to get supercharged with the combination of the high-performance development environment provided by Unity and the highly optimized cross device HTML5 engine by Frost. As the CEO of Fourth Monkey Media, Kirsten Tomilson, explained: "For us, the deep integration between Frost and Unity means that we can be up and running with HTML5 games in a few hours of development time." Tomilson continued: "Today, HTML5 game development means having to use a few custom HTML5 libraries, a weak set of commercial choices and a lot of custom engineering. Frost has taken this pain away and in addition offers multiplayer and game discovery technologies to back Unity2HTML5 up. They have really thought this through and we are stoked to be part of the beta group to make this happen."

"The Fourth Monkey team has been committed to helping us across our Frost technology platform from the day we started the company," stated Strachan. "The quality of their work and deep HTML5 skill set will be key in helping tune Unity2HTML5 for development studios of all sizes."
