The GitHub for Unity extension we announced at the Game Developers Conference last March is now open source! Download the latest release for Windows and OS X for free, and enjoy the benefits of Git and features of GitHub without leaving Unity.

Large files? No problem!

GitHub for Unity supports Git LFS, the open source Git extension for versioning large files.

Add file locking to your workflow

With the introduction of file locking in Git LFS 2.2.0, locking files to avoid merge conflicts is a simple as a few clicks. No more shouting at your colleagues from across the room (or sending them messages in ALL CAPS) telling them to leave your scene alone.
