The SpatialOS Game Development Kit (GDK) for Unity allows you to quickly and easily build and host Unity multiplayer games. These games can use multiple server-side game engines across one seamless world to create new kinds of gameplay.

If you’re a Unity game developer and ready to try out the GDK, follow the Get started guide.

The SpatialOS GDK for Unity is in alpha. We are committed to rapid development of the GDK to improve stability, usability, and performance - for information on this, see our development roadmap and contact us via our forums, or on Discord. Sign up to our mailing list to get updates about the GDK for Unity.

Developing on the GDK

We recommend that you start developing with the Blank Starter Project or the First Person Shooter (FPS) Starter Project.

If you’d like to develop on this repository, there is a little bit of additional setup:

Developer dependencies

In addition to the dependencies listed here, you will need the following programs present on your PATH:

Setup

  1. Checkout this repository.
  2. Run init.sh or init.ps1 to download the dependencies.
  3. Open the Unity project in workers/unity.

Why do I need to hit init?

As of release 0.2.5, we publish the dependencies as UPM (NPM) packages. This repository contains the source for these packages, but dependencies such as the Worker SDK and schema standard library are not committed to the repository. init.sh/init.ps1 downloads these dependencies and puts them in the correct place.

If you fail to run init.sh/init.ps1 before opening Unity, Unity will delete the .meta files associated with the files downloaded by init.sh/init.ps1. If this happens to you, run git reset --hard to reset the repostory back to a good state. Note that this is a destructive git operation, so any un-committed changes will be lost.

Having problems?

If you are unable to resolve your issue, please raise an issue in this repository or find us on the forums or Discord.

This is the alpha release of the SpatialOS GDK for Unity. We invite projects to start using it but warn that all APIs are subject to change as we learn from feedback.
