Web to mobile
Today I pushed the latest version of the IGX SDK to Github which provides support for deploying IGX SDK compatible games, including Facebook Instant Games and general web games to Android and iOS.
Games are hosted in a web view within Unity 3D. A new library has been provided which plugs into the IGX SDK and communicates between the web view and Unity which provides access to native features such as in-app purchasing and adverts.
Supported features include:
- Adverts via Unity Ads (Admob is work in progress)
- In-app purchasing
- Social login via Game Centre and Google Play Games
- Leaerboards via Game Centre and Google Play Games
- Native sharing
- Analytics via Unity
- Open external URL’s
- File uploads
- Localisation support
The IGX SDK wiki has been updated providing instructions on how to set up a Unity project to host your game and content.
Below is an example of a deployed Facebook Instant Game which has been deployed to Android and iOS stores:
Who is the IGX SDK for?
The IGX SDK is for web and and Facebook Instant Game developers that would like an easy route to take their products from web to mobile platforms such as Android and iOS. IGX provides an alternative solution to the likes of Cordova, PhoneGap and CocoonJS.
