Integrating Amazon’s In-App Purchasing and Amazon GameCircle APIs into mobile games is easy, but we’re always working to make it even quicker and easier. Today, we're pleased to announce the release of new plug-ins for the In-App Purchasing and GameCircle APIs for the Unity game engine.
If you build your games with Unity, you can now use these plug-ins to rapidly add both In-App Purchasing for virtual goods and GameCircle for leaderboards, achievements, and Whispersync for Games.
Unity Technologies' game engine is one of the most popular tools for creating games. It enables you to easily create rich, interactive 3D experiences by providing ways to assemble your art and assets into scenes and environments, add physics, and simultaneously play-test and edit games. When you’re finished building and testing, the Unity engine creates a binary targeted for your chosen platform –like an Android APK which you can publish to Kindle Fire and the Amazon Appstore for Android.
The new plug-ins for Unity are available today for free as part of the AmazonMobile App SDK. You can download the latest version here. Just follow the simple instructions in the documents to get started. Of course, you’ll also need the Unity game engine in order to use the plug-ins. If you haven’t tried it yet, you can download a free version of Unity here.
