When you're working in your text editor, it can be a nuisance to have to manually switch back to Unity to test your game. This AppleScript will automatically bring Unity to the front and press Command-P to start the game:

AppleScript - Play In Unity.scpt

tell application "System Events"
	tell application "Unity" to activate
	keystroke "p" using command down
end tell</boo>
Enter this into the AppleScript editor, save it in whatever mode your text editor supports (probably 'script'), and place it in a location where your text editor will be able to find it.
For example, with [ BBEdit], save the script in ~/Library/Application Support/BBEdit/Scripts/.  Once you've done that, you can assign a keystroke to launch it using the Scripts Palette.  This also works for the free [ TextWrangler] editor, providing you substitute 'TextWrangler' for 'BBEdit' in the above path.
