Leading game developer platform Unity is tapping into Web3, releasing a “decentralization” category in its online storefront, the company said Tuesday in a press release.

As a part of the toolkit, Unity is adding support for 13 different blockchain-based software developer kits (SDKs), from chains and products including Algorand, Aptos, Dapper Labs’ Flow blockchain, Immutable X, MetaMask, Solana and Tezos.

Unity aims to provide game developers resources to connect with Web3 gaming, a crypto sector that’s been on the rise. With the decentralization storefront in the Unity Asset Store, developers can build in blockchain technologies such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse to bolster gameplay experiences.

“The gaming industry is rapidly growing, and the Web3 gaming sector is attracting significant investment,” MetaMask said in a tweet. “Our listing in Unity will bring Web3 values to the gaming industry. It’s a whole new era for gaming devs.”

Web3 game developers have been eager for Unity to enter the business with its own tools – having already optimized their products for the gaming engine. In March 2022, Web3 gaming platform Joyride raised $14 million ahead of its launch, supporting developers in building their games on Unity. The following October, blockchain infrastructure company ChainSafe raised nearly $19 million, focusing on helping developers connect their games to Unity.
