    Hi all,

    Does Somebody know a good Book which explains how the Engine in Unity works?
    For expample, the Resource Management, Garbage Collectors. Updates and Transformation of Objects(Cameraspace, etc.)?

    There won't be much official information about the exact internals of the engine, but I would assume that most of it is covered by this book: Game Engine Architecture by Jason Gregory
    It also has a newer edition, which I haven't read.

    Apart from that there will only be scattered information about specific topics. I once found a GDC talk about asset management in game engines, which also had a PDF version, which was one of the inspirations for how Unity handles things, but I lost the link, sorry.

    Apart from that I'm also always interested in resources about game engine internals.
