Overview

This article will go over:

  • Github: Upload your game onto Github for continuous deployment. This will set up Fleek.
  • Fleek: Fleek gets content from Github and publishes it on IPFS. Any updates to Github will automatically republish.
  • Unstoppable Domain: Purchase a human readable domain name for your IPFS game and share it with the world.
  • Pinata.cloud: Pin static content such as images. Useful for meta tags.

Unity Setup

Visit Unity and install.

Github Setup

Create a Github account, go to your repositories and click New.

Fleek Setup

Visit fleek.co and sign in with your Github account.

Unstoppable Domain Setup

Visit Unstoppable Domains and search for an awesome name.

Pinata <meta> Bonus!

Pinata offers an easy to use pinning service which is great for static content. Upload an image:

<meta property="og:image" content="https://gateway.pinata.cloud/ipfs/QmfTfFRZTac5onepjgqBFDfmnqKcG4dVEBgrNKGqpxLgaD" />

Conclusion

This guide is starting point for building more complex web3 games. We hope you take this idea and run with it (multiplayer, chat, crypto payments). We’re excited to see future iterations!
