Unity Technologies, the developer of the Unity game engine, is soon to release a “decentralization” category page included in its online storefront.
The Unity Asset Store will include vetted solutions to support developers interested in technology and decentralization in gaming.
Among several other benefits, Unity will provide the required resources needed for game developers to connect with web 3.0 games.
The dedicated page will help developers find solutions to manage digital assets, set up smart contracts and build on blockchain networks, NFTs, and the metaverse.
As part of the new initiative, Unity is adding support for 13 blockchain-based software developer kits (SDKs) including MetaMask, Nefta, Solana, Dapper Labs and Immutable X.
Many game developers have been waiting for Unity to tap into web 3.0 for some time. In anticipation of the launch some already optimized their products for the gaming engine’s decentralization platform.
In March 2022, web 3.0 platform Joyride raised $14m to support developers building games on Unity, and in October, ChainSafe raised $19m.
“It has come. The launch of the MetaMask SDK in the Unity Asset Store will allow devs to connect their games to the wallet, enabling users to interact with web 3.0-enabled features within the game itself. Get ready for a whole new level of gameplay!,” MetaMask said in a tweet.
“The gaming industry is rapidly growing, and the web 3.0 gaming sector is attracting significant investment. With one million users connected to web 3.0 games across 48 blockchains daily, the potential for growth is huge”, the platform continued.
