The SpatialOS GDK for Unity (alpha)

The SpatialOS Game Development Kit (GDK) for Unity enables game developers to build multiplayer Unity games with SpatialOS. It will be made up of three parts:

  • the GDK Core, a performant, data-driven SpatialOS multiplayer integration.

  • a library of solutions for hard or common networked game development problems via Feature Modules.

  • the example game, which both tests and demonstrates the Feature Modules; for use as a starting point or resource for game development.

For further high-level information about this, see the summary of key features.

This is an alpha release of the GDK Core which is the foundation of the product. To find out more see the GDK blogpost.

This alpha release is for experienced Unity developers who have some understanding of SpatialOS concepts, and want to give early feedback.

This alpha version software and its documentation is, by its very nature, rough and ready; every part of it is subject to change, including the APIs, and it isn’t optimised for performance. In addition, the GDK is based on Unity’s experimental Entity Component System and Job System.

This release is for evaluation and feedback only, with limited documentation; we aren’t supporting any game development yet.

Support policy

We are not supporting the alpha release for game development, as this version is for evaluation only. However, please do give us your feedback.

Migration from the SpatialOS Unity SDK

Currently the GDK is in its early development, so there is no migration path from the SpatialOS SDK for Unity to the GDK. There will be a migration path in later releases.
