The complete toolset for blockchain integration in games with Arkane’s Unity plugin

With the release of the newest version of the Unity plugin, Arkane offers game developers a complete solution to integrate blockchain in games and use the blockchain as an inventory management system to safely store the gamer’s precious assets. Arkane Network abstracts traditionally complex Blockchain signup flows, allowing gamers without prerequisite blockchain and cryptocurrency knowledge to play Matic powered games while still enjoying all the benefits of blockchain, like play-to-earn. Making it game developers easy with the Unity blockchain gaming SDK

Unity is the most popular game development engine used by game studios. With the release of the Arkane blockchain gaming SDK for Unity, game developers can publish their in-game items from within Unity straight to the Polygon blockchain without any knowledge of blockchain, smart contracts or transaction handling. The gamer’s assets can be queried on the blockchain and used as scriptable objects in the game.

Easy user onboarding with Arkane wallets

Forget the difficult sign-up flows of the first generation blockchain games where gamers have to juggle with browser plugins and private keys. Gamers want to experience gameplay and great UX. that’s why Arkane wallets allow gamers to sign on to their favorite games with their social logins like Google, Facebook or Twitter. Arkane takes care of the players asset’s linked to their socials and safely stored on the blockchain.

To make it even better, the ERC-1155 smart contracts support gas stations, so gamers don’t even need any knowledge about blockchain and cryptocurrencies to play Polygon or Ethereum powered games while still enjoying all the benefits of blockchain.

An NFT market in your game

The Arkane NFT market can be integrated into your games to make it easy for your gamers to buy and sell your in-game assets without leaving their favourite game. The integration can be done via the white labeled APIs so the in-game market fits the design. Arkane takes care of all blockchain interactions.

“Polygon is rapidly becoming the go-to platform for Gaming and NFT Dapps, and Arkane Wallet is an incredibly powerful service in the arsenals of developers. The integration of Unity, one of the most popular game development engines will usher in supercharged gaming applications and innovations.”

— Arun Philips, Marketing Polygon

“At Arkane we feel it is hugely important to break down barriers to entry. We’ve seen how difficult it is to embrace blockchain technology that we cannot just expect everyone to change how they develop software today and use such an innovative technology like blockchain to automate value transactions. Game developers use Unity to create digital (game) assets and we should make it easy for them to embrace new technologies. Polygon is solving another important challenge, namely making blockchain scalable so that businesses can rely on the technology infrastructure.”

— Tim Dierckxsens, Co-founder & CEO Arkane

The benefits of the Arkane Unity plugin for game developers using Polygon blockchain.

The tool simplifies integration with Arkane API exposing all features and functions to C# classes and includes Editor extensions to aid in design and deployment of Contracts and Tokens.
