Unity users are able to create and build games that they can sell or use to raise money for charities. Charity game builders, however, were exempt from the new install fees, and Unity has now been accused of telling developers who donate to Planned Parenthood that Planned Parenthood is not a charity, but a political organization — and therefore, it does not qualify.  In a blog post in the Steam Community, adults-only video game company LizardFactory ma ..read more
