    The numbers below are for a project with one cube, one camera, and one scene. None of the standard or other assets were included.

    The upshot is that around 14MB of "something" extra (i.e., debug symbols) is being compiled in. Since there are only three objects in the entire project, this seems a little excessive. I bring this up because I have noticed that builds can get ununusually large. I wasn't sure if this was an artifact of running Unity on an Intel Mac, or if this was normal behavior. I do understand that around 10MB (spread between the frameworks and the binary) is the minimum to provide core functionality.

    Debug symbols are from the frameworks and executable - they're a constant overhead, and not related to your project size.
