Unity is a game development framework that is perfect for both beginner programmers and seasoned veterans alike.
The framework itself offers a nice, easy editing workflow with all the property windows and real-time editor window in a pleasing-to-the-eye manner. The ease of which wannabe game developers can jump in and start playing with Unity’s functions is next to learning your ABCs, and the power that Unity can yield for the more savvy programmers amongst us is next to Godlike.
Developing a game in Unity means you can easily port it to other platforms and not just PC, such as Windows App Store, Google Play Store, the Apple Store and even consoles such as Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5.
Whilst developing your game and upon official release a lot of Unity developers sway towards a game launcher for their Unity developments. Here we will take a look at the advantages of a Unity launcher and patching system and why Game Launcher Creator V2 is perfect for the job.
What is a launcher?
A game launcher provides you with the golden opportunity to reach out to your players before they enter the game. A Unity launcher offers many advantages to players of your game such as sharing news updates, videos, links to downloads, mods, forums and much more.
By having a launcher be the first thing your player sees, you can present them with a way to purchase new mods, new in-game items, keep them updated on the latest news and changelogs and even allow them to run the game on different configurations. A launcher for your Unity made game is definitely the trend this side of the decade for sure.
Launchers for Unity made games are popular because not only does it give you a chance to allow the user to browse other game-related content, it also allows you, the Unity developer, to push out crucial game updates and patches.
Launch and Patch
We all know how important game updates and hotfixes can be and sometimes you may need to push an update out to your players. On some occasions you may actually need to force an update in order for them to continue playing your Unity game. The beauty about a GLCV2 launcher is, you can do all of this and so much more.
A game launcher made with Game Launcher Creator V2 will allow you to do everything we’ve discussed above and even include a built-in patching system called AOPS. AOPS is short for Advanced Online Patching System and it is a very advanced (but easy to use) patching system that is already built-in to GLCV2 and your launcher. All you need to do is configure it for your Unity game files and every time you update your game, your players version will be updated too.
