Unity has integrated the proven Web3 Software Development Kit (SDK) built for the Tezos blockchain into the Unity Asset Store.

This announcement marks the first blockchain SDK co-developed with Unity as part of a new Web3 game development development initiative.

The Tezos SDK gives game developers the ability to focus on Web3 games with a complete suite that allows them to do things like connect to a Tezos blockchain wallet.

Using the wallet pairing feature in the SDK, developers can allow users to authenticate using their Tezos blockchain credentials. According to Tezos, players can securely authenticate themselves in the game, sign transactions on the blockchain, access all assets on the network, and use cryptocurrency to purchase services, features, or game assets.

The SDK also allows game developers to collect data on the Tezos blockchain, such as checking which game features or in-game assets a user owns. It is important to note that users can manage the storage of their assets using smart contracts or invoke offline views, creating access to any data stored on the blockchain.

And the SDK allows developers to call smart contracts. Games will be able to generate calls to Tezos smart contracts that must be signed by the user, opening up the limitless possibilities of smart contracts on Tezos. From simple transactions such as purchasing additional features with cryptocurrency, to creating in-game assets based on achievements, this feature will allow users to trade on public markets, transfer in-game assets, or participate in multiplayer competitions.

And Tezos said it allows for true ownership of in-game assets. With the SDK, users will be able to own and easily authenticate game assets through the Tezos blockchain. Signing data with smart contracts allows games to prompt users to verify the authenticity of data signed by other users.

The Tezos SDK supports desktop, Android, iOS, and browsers. In addition to enabling game developers to interact with the Tezos blockchain, this SDK is designed for any app developer building a Tezos decentralized application (dApp).

“We are thrilled to see the release of this SDK in partnership with Unity, making Web3 games the most popular platform for game development,” said Jeremy Fu, Global Head of Games at Trilitech, in a statement. “This is the first comprehensive blockchain SDK developed in conjunction with Unity, providing game developers with an easy-to-use end-to-end solution for adding a wide range of Web3 features that will make the game more fun for players.”

The Web3 SDK, jointly developed by Unity and the Tezos ecosystem, is one of the first of its kind to be added to the Unity Asset Store and demonstrates the growing interest of gamers in building a future blockchain.

Unlike traditional proof-of-work blockchains, Tezos’ proof-of-stake mechanism is an energy-efficient approach to securing its network, ensuring that new apps and games built on Tezos don’t consume unnecessarily high power, the company said.

Tezos is one of the on-chain managed blockchains, allowing community members to propose protocol upgrades to continually evolve and meet the needs of their users without disrupting or splitting the network.

Popular gaming companies and organizations currently using Tezos include Ubisoft, CCP Games (Eve Online), Team Vitality and Misfits Gaming Group esports teams, and Beat Em style indie games like Blockxer and others.
