Unity, a renowned platform for creating and growing real-time 3D (RT3D) content, has announced the launch of a new “Decentralization” category page on the Unity Asset Store. This page is dedicated to providing verified solutions to developers interested in incorporating decentralization technology in gaming.
The new category page on the Asset Store will help developers discover solutions to manage digital assets, set up smart contracts, build on blockchain networks, and more. Decentralization, in this context, typically refers to ownership models in games that enable players to create, earn or obtain in-game resources that they can then trade or sell.
The Asset Store now offers 13 new verified solutions in the Decentralization category. These solutions include AIKON ORE ID, Algorand, Altura, Aptos Labs, Dapper Labs, Immutable X, Infura (ConsenSys), Metamask (ConsenSys), Nefta, Pocketful of Quarters, Solana, Tezos, and Truffle (ConsenSys). Each solution offers unique features that enable developers to create decentralized games and incorporate blockchain technology into their games.
AIKON ORE ID is a single sign-on platform that allows developers to create a Blockchain account upon first sign-in. Algorand offers developers tools to easily integrate digital assets and primitives into their games while leveraging the Algorand blockchain. Altura’s API and SDKs allow developers to create, update and transfer NFTs in-game. Aptos Labs created a software development kit that allows game developers to start building on Aptos, while Dapper Labs’ Flow SDK for Unity allows Unity developers to integrate their games and applications with the Flow blockchain.
Immutable X is a leading developer platform for building and scaling mainstream-ready web3 games on Ethereum, and Infura’s infrastructure and suite of tools help developers build and connect to any EVM-compatible blockchain. Metamask’s SDK is a library that developers can install into their projects, which helps users connect easily with a MetaMask Wallet client for any game developed on Unity.
Nefta’s SDK gives developers access to seamless integration of digital assets, multi-chain wallets, tokens, custom marketplaces, white label services, and more. Pocketful of Quarters’ Quarters SDK is a plug and play monetization tool for developers that allows them to focus on creating social and interoperable games. The Solana SDK for Unity lets game developers easily integrate Solana-based NFTs, tokens, and on-chain programs within their Unity games.
The Tezos SDK comes with a wide range of features, including linking player accounts across games, minting and trading of in-game items and currencies, and more. Truffle is a comprehensive smart contract development framework for Ethereum.
With these solutions, developers can easily create decentralized games that enable players to own their in-game assets and trade them on blockchain networks.
