In a press release, the San Francisco-headquartered company said its game engine now works with such blockchain ecosystems as Solana, Algorand and Tezos. In addition to distributed ledgers, Unity also allows developers to integrate digital wallets with the help of MetaMask.

Besides pre-defined products, game developers can build their own API bridge from scratch connecting their products to an EVM-compatible network with Infura, a blockchain infrastructure provider. Unity said that with the move it wants to support developers "interested in technology that enables decentralization in gaming."
