I plan to test this new character generation free tool as soon as possible and test its out of the box integration with unity game development engine, am i really interested in the skelton format and i plan to write a workflow tutorial to import character models from the Autodesk character generator into Unity Mecanim animation system. If the importing process proves to be painless this can be a great resources to fast prototyping of critical game assets as character models and animations, i hope to test it with the current Unity version in the next weeks.
