The Unity game engine is a cross-platform development environment. It has great potential as a tool for collecting large amounts of behavioural data, both in the lab, the class room and remotely — e.g. over the internet and on user’s own devices. I present an early version of an iPad app which uses a series of measures to track cognitive, social and emotional development in primary school children. Describing the process of developing this software in-house, and the strengths of the Unity environment for creating scalable and highly usable experimental applications.
