web3 game development

What is web3 game development?

Web3 not only creates a whole new kind of game, but in creating new opportunities and new business models. In this article we will introduce you to web3 game development.

Web3 and gaming

Web3Games (GameFi) has transformed the crypto world and is responsible for 49% of blockchain usage in the industry. By 2021, more than 1.4 million active wallets will interact with blockchain games, and venture capitalists have invested more than $4 billion in GameFi. Below is a summary of the findings.

The growth of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) over the past year has accelerated GameFi’s development: In 2021, revenue from game with support for NFTs exceedeed USD 4.5 billion, representing 20% of total NFT revenue in 2021 Much of thisdriven by the rapid growth of P2E (play-to-earn) tokens, and in one particular game, Axie Infinity, that was the inspiration for many others.

The rise of Web3 is changing the entire gaming landscape, introducing , not only and non-fungible tokens (NFT) , but also new and innovative ways to play and new technologies as blockchain and cryptocurrencies, .

But what is Web3’s biggest impact on this new world of gaming? It democratizes many aspects of gaming and offers players entirely new ways to succeed. We’ve never seen a model like this, where players are given a lot of power and that power can be leveraged across many games in the ecosystem, rather than concentrated in a single game.

What is Web3?

How Web3 creates a successful environment for gamers before …. . what exactly is Web3?

Web 3 stands for Web 3.0 and encompasses a new idea of a version of the Internet that operates in a decentralized, quasi-anonymous source. Instead of all the power being in the hands of giant technology companies, it is distributed among users.

Web 3, as its name implies, follows Web 1 and Web 2, and let’s look at the key features of each stage of development.

  • Web1: the prototype of the World Wide Web, which was based on open source and open standards;
  • Web2: which focused on user-generated content and ushered in the era of blogs, wikis and social networks;
  • Web3: the new Web3 is not just an information exchange, but a value exchange model characterized by self-reliance and the massive decentralization of the Internet.

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s get back to the game.

Self-reliance and interoperability

The biggest opportunities for players in the Web3 metaverse come from the ability to realize true ownership and interoperability in the game, which is enabled by blockchain and NFTs.

NFTs are the new face of Web3 gaming, and their popularity has grown exponentially recently because NFTs offer something that previous gaming models could not – the ability to truly own almost any type of unique asset and item in the game.

In traditional games, players buy game-specific goods. But what happens when that player moves on to another game? The item or multiple items they purchased all go down the drain. Have you ever experienced such a situation? This is how countless game items are wasted in the virtual world.

Web3 Games has the perfect solution to this problem: interoperability. Players no longer have to lose money on these items as they can be moved between multiple games. Players can now freely switch between multiple games, giving them more control and freedom.

And if a player doesn’t want to take the item with them or no longer has a use for it, they don’t have to worry. In-game NFTs can be used as an investment rather than a one-time purchase.

Merging with the past

Every player has a title that they are drawn to. It may be a game they are good at, or a game they played as a child, for a variety of reasons. Games are personal. It would be tragic to throw away all the existing titles that have entertained generations.

Fortunately, the Web3 ecosystem listens to gamers and enables the transition by moving existing titles to a new in-game commerce model. Imagine if all your favorite games expanded into the metaverse. Web3 not only creates an entirely new type of game, but also enables integration with games from the past.

Player-centric games

The new capabilities offered by Web3 allow gamers to find an ecosystem that fits them as well as Big Tech. In particular, there are many new opportunities to earn and win through the ecosystem’s promise of digital assets and interoperability. It also makes room for the past, rather than wiping it away, and strikes the right balance between the familiar and the new.

In the Web3 environment, the role of games will be to return true decentralization and power to the player

What is web3 technology?

Web3 is the next-generation Internet based on blockchain technology. Compared to the previous Internet known as Web2 or Web2.0, where data and content were in the hands of a few companies known as “big tech,” Web3 gives end users more options and decentralizes control.

The future of gaming will be shaped by Web3, it is the next evolution, just as mobile and free-to-play were paradigm shifts for gaming. Players today are familiar with in-app purchases in battle royale games like BGMI, but they have no value beyond the scope of the game. This is where crypto gaming helps changing the concept and allow the player to take part in the game’s economy.

What are WEB3 games?

We could say that Web3 games are games that use the web3 protocol and blockchain technology. They are mainly games of chance, but there are also games of skill.

History of WEB3 games

Web3 games are a relatively new genre of video games that utilize the capabilities of the web 3.0 platform. These games allow players to interact with each other and digital assets using blockchain technology. However, this is only one aspect of what makes these games so unique.

One of the most important features of these games is that they can be played using any device or browser. This makes them perfect for mobile platforms as well as desktop computers. Additionally, many game developers are working on creating versions of their games that can be played on virtual reality headsets.

Because these games rely on web 3.0 platform, developers have been able to create very intricate and engaging storylines. As a result, players are often drawn into the world of these games and become invested in its characters and plotlines.

How WEB3 games work

Web3 games are a type of online game that uses a blockchain decentralized networks (like  Ethereum , BSC , Polygon, Avalanche and others) as their platform.

One of the most popular web3 games is CryptoKitties. CryptoKitties is an online game that uses the Ethereum blockchain to store and manage the digital assets of the players. Players can buy, sell, and trade CryptoKitties with each other, and they can also earn rewards by playing the game.

CryptoKitties was created by Jeremy Liew, a venture capitalist and entrepreneur who is also the co-founder of BitAngels, a venture capital firm that invests in bitcoin and cryptocurrency companies. Jeremy Liew is also a member of The Bitcoin Foundation, which is an organization that promotes bitcoin technology.

Advantages of WEB3 games

WEB3 games are gaining popularity because of their advantages. They use the power of web3 and blockchain to create innovative gaming experiences. Here are a few reasons why they are popular:

  • Secure: All game data is stored on the blockchain, which ensures that games are tamper-proof.
  • Transparent: Players can see all game transactions and data on the blockchain. This makes cheating virtually impossible.
  • Rewarding: Players can earn tokens and other rewards for playing games. These tokens can then be used to purchase in-game items or services.
  • Interactive: Games often feature complex mechanics that require players to make decisions quickly. This makes them challenging and fun.

Disadvantages of WEB3 games

Web3 game platforms are becoming increasingly popular as a means of creating and playing games. However, there are some disadvantages that should be considered before using web3 game platforms.

First, web3 game platforms are not as widely supported as traditional gaming platforms. This means that not all devices can be used to play games on these platforms, and some games may not be available at all. Second, because blockchain technology is used in these games, players must have an understanding of blockchain concepts in order to participate.

Finally, crypto-based economies may present risks for players who do not understand the risks involved.

Five criteria to evaluate the potential of Web3 games

Here are five criteria we propose to evaluate the long-term potential of Web3 games.

1. The nature of the game world.

Factors to consider.

How rich is the game world? Quality of graphics and animation, interesting story Is the game entertaining even without making money? Although subjective, it is important to ask about “fun,” and this applies to both the game and the money-making strategies. It’s not an absolute requirement, but it’s definitely a plus in terms of user retention. There are many options for newcomers to the Web3 game mechanism. Defi Kingdoms, for example, has been praised for simplifying difficult cryptographic concepts through gamification.

Why is this important?

Originally, the blockchain gaming ecosystem consisted mainly of MMOs, RPGs, card games, and strategy games with simple gameplay and graphics. However, game developers are now experimenting with more graphically elaborate and complex game mechanics, and the upcoming Star Atlas is a good example of a game that will make some jaws drop.

By offering a richer experience, Web3 games that previously targeted the crypto-savvy will likely become more appealing to the “traditional” gaming community and increase sales.

Speculation is a legitimate part of the business, but creating meaningful engagement, particularly through the ability to co-create game assets and worlds, will be key to reaching the mass market. When it comes to blockchain-enabled UGC, native Web3 studios have a technological advantage over their predecessors, and this should be leveraged to the fullest.

2. Business Model.

Factors to consider.

Is there an F2P element? Can this game be purchased right now? This has a direct impact on the mass market potential of the game. Revenue streams: Does the game combine multiple revenue streams? As a rule of thumb, the more, the less risk to the overall model. Token: Does the game have truly smart tokenomics that are interoperable in the real world and in other games? How has the value of tokens evolved so far? Are there luxury NFTs that are collectible and can be used in the game, or are they derivative jpgs? And what is their utility? Partnerships: High-profile partnerships can maximize brand awareness and appeal and enhance the reputation of native tokens. Merchandise (physical/digital): do studios partner with major brands and designs, especially for merchandise? Advertising: if present, is it tastefully integrated into the game or could it be distracting to players? Markets: are there marketplaces for acquiring assets inside and outside the game? Maintaining the value of digital assets purchased/acquired as part of the game mechanics: how much can players lose?

Why this is important.

There are many hurdles to entry into Web3 gaming, such as obtaining cryptocurrencies, creating wallets, paying gas bills, etc. Not to mention the general information asymmetry associated with the blockchain. This is not to say that “free-to-play” is always the way to go, but the higher the cost of entry for players, the harder it is to democratize Web3 games. An expensive purchase should be justified.

The sustainability of a Web3 game is based on a) accessibility and attractiveness, which determine how quickly the player base grows, b) meaningful content inside and outside the game, and c) strong partnerships. Multiple revenue streams make the project more stable and serve as a safety net in case one of the revenue streams fails.

3. Quality of the Team.

Factors to consider.

Is the team publicly available (doxed)? This is not always the case in the crypto sector. What is the size of the team? The size of the team should be proportionate to its ambitions and the scope of its roadmap (see #4 for more details). Do key members have relevant backgrounds? You need the best and brightest from a range of disciplines, including product development, games (especially top-tier studios), finance, crypto/tokenomics experts, marketing, and community building.

Why it matters.

This is about analyzing how well equipped the team is to execute the larger vision. This is similar in logic to assessing the core team of a startup by looking at the background of the founders and their complementarities.

Why this is important.

The point here is to analyze how well equipped the team is to implement the larger vision. This is similar in logic to evaluating the core team of a startup, looking at the background of the founders and the complementarity between them. However, the chief economist is a key asset for Web3D because of the additional need for expertise in conversational economics. A key member with experience in the games industry is also a great asset, especially for a studio that wants to reach a broader target audience.

4. Funding and roadmap.

Factors to consider.

Previous funding: Have you raised significant dollar/cryptocurrency amounts through venture capital (or otherwise) to realize your dream? Quality of venture capitalists: are they backed by Sequoia, a16z, etc.? Financial stability: is the game profitable in terms of business model, with multiple revenue streams and minimal risk? Or is there no funding and no corporate support? Ambitious + realistic roadmap: Is it visionary and ambitious or is there no roadmap? How detailed is the action plan? Frequency of updates: Does the project communicate regularly and transparently about all of the above?

Why this is important.

Ambitious projects with detailed roadmaps are encouraging. However, you need solid financial information to back them up. Studios with solid financials will want to promote them publicly – if they have any. Note: Many projects have big names on their websites, but may not yet have established specific partnerships with future significance. They may have simply used their platform to complete the project and then repurposed it as a marketing tactic.

As mentioned earlier, the same is not necessarily true for Web3 projects when it comes to funding. Some are basically avoiding traditional venture capital structures, opting instead for alternative and more community-driven methods.

5. Community

Factors to consider.

Social media following and engagement: is there a safe, active, and organically growing Telegram/Discord/Twitter community? Are they patchy? Do they exist? Project DAO: If there is a DAO, is it an active and intelligent DAO? If so, is it enabling progress on its roadmap? Or is it slowing down and becoming a distraction?

Why this is important.

Games with strong communities have an advantage over other games. Ideologically, the Web3 is all about communities, and social media is where those communities meet. A strong social media presence is an indicator of the potential to sustain hype and increase a project’s reach.

Telegram, Discord, and Twitter (also known as Crypto/NFT Twitter) have become the epicenter of web3life; other social media channels such as TikTok, Instagram, Twitch, and YouTube have been a source of inspiration for the project and its community. As a beacon of connection, DAOs will play a central role in fulfilling web3’s promise to create a truly decentralized and thriving community. Therefore, those who do it must do it right.

reasons to use GDEVELOP in your game

13 reasons to use GDEVELOP in your game ( First or Next)

One of the main problems when starting game development is the learning curve that the overall takes. Not only from a point of view of the technology but the view of the experience/feeling/sensibility required to make a game that is fun to play. In this article, we will be looking at 13 reasons to use DEVELOP in your game ( First or Next).

Although both points seem unrelated, the truth is that they are, and you cannot gain experience in making fun and pleasant games, without having the ability to master a tool that allows you to make quickly games without compromising on the quality and the features of the game.

When you think about beginner game engines, you usually think about tools like scratch, which are very easy to take on, but that limits you in the complexity and quality of the games that you can develop.

Develop is a solution that allows you to start quickly developing your games, but that won´t limit your capacity to make great games and will enable knowledge and complexity of the game to go hand in hand, to a point where professional games could be done.

So, here are 13 reasons why you should use GDevelop for your next game, or to make your first game in case you are beginning.

1.  Gdevelop is open source

GDevelop is a free and open-source, cross-platform 2D game development tool designed to be used by anyone, GDevelop is a general-purpose, and the game engine is powerful enough for any 2D game.

The bases of the project are one of the first versions of the Construct 2 source code which was released at the beginning of the game engine life cycle, and from then has grown into a full-blown game engine that shares some similarities with its parent, but that has also major differences.

reasons to use GDEVELOP in your game – GDEVELOP is easy to learn for all ages

Gdevelop is very easy to learn and doesn’t require any programming knowledge. The paradigm that lies behind the pair condition-action is very easy to understand and to start applying to making the games, but, at the same time is powerful and won´t limit the capacity and creativity of the development team.

You can create any kind of game: platformers, puzzles, shoot ’em up, strategy, 8-bit games, or just about any type genre of game that you want.

3.  Visual programming as its best

Reasons to use GDEVELOP in your game – Gdevelop Visual Scripting through its events System

The Events system is a powerful way to express the logic of your game, without having to learn a programming language. Events are super easy to learn and are designed to be just as powerful and flexible as any programming or scripting language.

Events support statements, conditional and logical operators, groups, links, and loops such as For Each and Repeat… You can even create functions, to reuse and share your events across projects.

If you feel like you do need to use a more traditional scripting language, you can use a JavaScript block inside an event. It’s perfect for reusing a complex algorithm or 3rd-party library.

4.  Built-in editors for quick prototyping and creation

Gdelvelop comes with third-party tools

GDevelop is embedding third-party editors like Piskel ( Must be installed on the system) for creating sprite and pixel-art assets, as well as a sound effect generator. It’s ideal for fast prototyping in game jams or making 8bit games!

The editor comes up with an integrated Debugger to inspect your game while previewing it, a Profiler to measure performance, and a Preview over wifi to quickly test on mobile devices.

5.  Gdevelop is extensible

Objects define what is displayed on the screen: 

  • Sprites with multiple animations – supporting rescaling and tinting,
  • Texts,
  • Tiled sprites and 9-patch objects (useful for background, platforms, etc),
  • Particles emitters,
  • Shape painters to draw arbitrary shapes on screen,

The game engine supports multiple layers, time slowdown/speed up, custom hitboxes, and is including a collision engine. You can also enhance your objects with pre-defined behaviors: 

  • platformer engine, 
  • physics engine, 
  • pathfinding,
  • automatic clean up of objects outside the screen,
  • and more!

7.  Gdevelop supports only 2D.

2D is still easier and faster to develop than 3D. This could be seen as a problem, but if you think about the problems generated by game engines that support both 2D and 3D, due to its availability, you will that just having one option will make the development more straightforward and more performant as everything is optimized for 2D.

8.  Gdevelop have multiplayer and network features

13. Gdevelop has a large community of developers and users.

Gdevelop as a large community very active, that will allow to get answers and help for some of the problems that you could find while developing your games. This will make your progress easier and more stable as you will not spend large periods of time blocked due to the lack of knowledge on solving some problem with the engine or with a particular aspect of your game.

Who is GDevelop not suitable for?

So far we’ve seen a lot of good reasons to use Gdevelop, but who is GDevelop not suitable for? Well, Gdevelop isn’t what will make the next big AAA game, or the next 3D best mobile game ranking on the top lists.

Just like the case of Godot, GDevelop will not “officially” generate games for the consoles ( although some workarounds exist) because the tools required to export the game to the consoles will not integrate with Gdevelop.

Gdevelop although being fun to develop due to the event systems and the visual scripting has some limitations associated with it, and visual scripting can have its bottlenecks when trying to make large changes at once.

12 reasons to use Godot Engine in your game

You are Looking for an open source tool for game development? And you don’t know which to choose? Here are 12 reasons to use Godot Engine in your game.

Game development has never been more accessible. With many tools available for free and an explosion of online tutorials, game creation has become accessible to everyone.

Unity and Unreal Engine are big names in game development. Both are free to use, but it doesn’t end there – Godot is a free and open source game development platform. Here are 12 reasons why Godot is perfect for your next game.

12 reasons to use Godot Engine Video

1. Godot is good for programmers

reasons to use Godot Engine – Good environment for programmers

Most game development environments require programming skills, but some are better suited to people with a programming background; Godot is a perfect example of a tool designed for programmers.

The Godot API exposes almost every element of the engine, and it is rare to find a feature that is not directly accessible in code. Godot is praised for its excellent documentation and ease of use from a coding standpoint.

2. Godot has a dedicated language

reasons to use Godot Engine
Reasons to use Godot Engine – Example of GDScript (the language in the Godot engine)



The Godot engine comes with a programming language called GDScript. For some, this is an immediate turn off. Often, internal languages are either unnecessary or poorly thought out.

GDScript is the result of internal testing by the Godot team: rather than creating a new language for the sake of it, GDScript came about as a result of iterating through other languages, such as Python and Lua. As such, GDScript was created to be as readable as Python, but retaining the necessary elements for development, such as strict typing, integration with better editors, and simpler speed optimization.

Many developers who start using Godot are surprised at how quickly they learn the language. However, if learning a new language is a chore, there is another way.

3. Godot has its own IDE

reasons to use Godot Engine in your game – Godot has its own IDE


Godot has a built-in IDE that, while it doesn’t have the cool features of other IDEs, such as VSCode’s Live Share feature, is ideal for use with Godot.

Of course, you are not tied to an in-engine IDE and can use your favorite IDE or text editor for programming in godot.

4. Godot supports multiple languages.

Reasons to use Godot Engine -
Reasons to use Godot Engine – – Multi language

Choosing a game development environment often means choosing a programming language. No matter how familiar you are with your preferred language, if the development tools you need are not supported, you have little choice.

Godot currently directly supports C++, C# and GDScript. It is also working on VisualScript, a node-based, code-free programming system similar to Unreal Engine’s Blueprint system.

5. Godot supports language binding

If the officially supported languages still don’t fit, there is still an option: the GDNative API allows other languages to be linked directly to the Godot engine. This allows access to the Godot API in the language of choice.

There are currently experimental bindings for Go, R, Nim, Rust and Ruby. Given Godot’s reputation among programmers and the demand for more languages to add, expect this list to grow quickly!

6. Godot have Visual Scripting

Reasons to use Godot Engine -
Reasons to use Godot Engine – Visual Scripting

Most game engines employ scenes, usually to represent levels in the game. There are objects within this scene – GameObjects in Unity and Actors in Unreal Engine.

In Godot, a scene is a collection of nodes. Each node is an object, and each node can inherit from other objects. A group of nodes is called a scene. Scenes can inherit from each other as long as they have a common root node.

Godot’s node system offers a different approach to working with objects, one that takes time to understand (it is beyond the scope of this article to explain in detail here). Those who master it will appreciate it as an intuitive and scalable design tool.

7. Godot supports 2D and 3D game development

Reasons to use Godot Engine -
Reasons to use Godot Engine – Godot 3d


Godot supports 2D and 3D game production; independent developers who make 2D games like the workflow Godot offers. Instead of pseudo-2D (a 3D world represented in two dimensions), Godot works in a real 2D space represented by pixels. This greatly simplifies the creation and optimization of 2D games.

The 3D support is still new and lags behind Unreal Engine and Unity. However, unless you are creating AAA games with high-end graphics, you will not have any limitations using Godot.

Godot has 2D and 3D specific nodes, some designed to work with both, and support for 2.5D is coming soon.

8. Godot is open source

Godot Engine Github Open Source

Godot is an open source software. The editor and all associated tools are compliant with the MIT license. Godot is free and anything created with it is yours.

The open source nature of the Godot project also makes it extremely extensible. If you’re a programmer working on this platform and you find something that isn’t implemented or doesn’t work the way you want it to, you can change it.

Godot has many community-developed tools, and many users have added their own elements to the engine as part of their game development.

9. Godot is lightweight

The standard godot executable is just over 60 MB and requires no installation. Just download it, unzip it and you’re ready to go. Not only is the file size small, but the engine itself runs comfortably on systems with light loads.

One problem is that the Godot engine is a Godot game. This means that the performance within the engine is reflected in the performance of the finished project that uses it.

The memory footprint for the executables is also very small which means that engine introduces less overhead on the memory management of the native system, resulting in a performance more stable.

10. Godot is cross-platform

reasons to use Godot Engine – Godot is available for PC, Mac and Linux.


Godot is truly cross-platform, targeting Mac, Windows, and Linux developers. Many alternative tools were developed for a specific operating system and have problems when ported to another.

It’s unclear if Godot is cross-platform by design, but users on all platforms have reported similar experiences, and all Godot games are designed for multiple environments. Godot also has a server designed specifically for multiplayer games.

There is also a Raspberry Pi version in development, which of course makes us very happy.

11. Godot has huge and growing community

One of the biggest hurdles in open source is to find the tool that you chosen to use is not well supported, mainly because the community backing the project is very small or not very active. Godot has a large community very active that are constantly fixing bugs, releasing new features and making sure that the game engine keeps developing forward.

12. Godot has large base of documentation and tutorials

Reasons to use Godot Engine -
Reasons to use Godot Engine – Godot Engine youtube tutorials

Similar to the previous point, not having enough and good documentation, or not finding tutorials that can help you understand how to implement certain functionalities at different levels ( beginners, intermediate or advanced). Godot has a large collection of very good documentation, and you will be able find plenty of tutorials of levels to help you getting started with the engine.

Who is Godot not suitable for?


So far we’ve seen a lot of good reasons to use Godot, but who is Godot not suitable for? Well, Godot isn’t what makes the next big AAA movie, and it’s not the kind of people this engine is aimed at either.

Perhaps more importantly for indie developers is the fact that there is currently no direct way to produce Godot games for consoles. This is because the tools for publishing to consoles are closed-source, which contradicts Godot’s commitment to open-source.

However, with third-party tools for console publishing in development and the increasing use of Godot, opportunities for consoles will continue to grow.

How to use correctly Singletons in Unity

Even if you are new to Unity, you will probably already heard about a mysterious entity in c# and Unity called Singleton. What You will probably not know is that there are both advantages and disadvantages to singletons in Unity and how to use correctly.

We already somewhat covered singletons but for the flax engine, as in one of our first tutorials, we implemented Singletons in the Flax as to show its similarities with Unity.

Introduction

There are plenty of opinions about it, some say that singletons are useful, but should never be used.

Some says, that you should use them, but that they are very difficult to manage and can increase the complexity of your code and how to debug it as it grows in size.

Singletons in UNity
Singletons in Unity – Unity Game Engine – Source Wikipeda

But, if you are trying to finish a game, singletons can be a useful and easy way to connect scripts without going nuts with linking references between the scripts in your project folder..

And it’s not just beginners, there are many Unity developers who like to use singletons, including ourselves.

So what is a singleton?

Is it helpful or harmful? Is it easy or is difficult and complex’

And can you use it in your project? Or should you avoid it at all costs?

The answer is not blowing in the wind my friend, and it is neither yes or no, it is, It depends…

In general, many of the problems that can arise when using singletons are not actually caused by the singletons themselves, but by the way they are coded and used in your project.

Some singleton implementation methods can be problematic, but what problems you end having will depend on your project and its fundamental design.

Singletons in Unity
Singletons in Unity – Coding

The reason for this is that in many cases, the consequences of using singletons only become apparent when the project grows or when you decide to make some changes its structure.

Unfortunately, this means that the risks of using singletons can be unclear at the beginning of the implementation process and only start to show its face later along the game development.

In this tutorial ( and video) we will try to show you the different ways you can use singletons to simplify game development, as well as the possibles risks you could be facing, so you can make the right decision about whether or not to use singletons in your game.

What is a singleton in Unity?


In general, a singleton in Unity is a class that exists in a scene and is only globally accessible once.

The idea is that any other script can access the singleton and connect objects to important parts of the game, such as the player or other game systems.

It’s also useful for connecting unrelated objects or scripts to global systems like the audio manager.

So how does it work?

Unity singletons are regular classes that can be added to objects in the game.

Singletons differ, however, in that the class contains a public static reference to an instance of its own type.

It looks like this.

public class MyClass : MonoBehaviour 
{
    public static MyClass instance;
}


Static references provide global access to the singleton, so this means that any script can access the singleton by its class name without having to refer to that variable first.

MyClass.instance;


This means that other scripts in the game can easily access the public methods and variables of the Singleton class.

However, since any script can access them, it is generally a good idea to protect instance variables with properties. This simply means that they can be read by other scripts, but can only be set within their own class.

public class MyClass : MonoBehaviour 
{
     public static MyClass instance;
     public static MyClass MyInstance
     { 
         get´{
           if(instance == null)
              instance=this;
          return instance;
          }
      }
}


A reference to a script is static and the same for every instance of the class, but the instance it points to is not static. This means that the reference points to only one instance of the script, but there may be multiple instances of the singleton in the scene.

It is therefore important to check that the static reference matches the instance of the script and that there is only one instance of the singleton.

These are the two basic requirements for Singletons.

A globally accessible class, but with only one instance.

But why create a singleton and what can a singleton do?

Why use singletons?


Singletons are very useful because they allow parts of the game to be more easily connected.

Singletons can be used, for example, to make the player’s position visible to the enemy or the player’s values visible to the user interface.

For example, like this.

float healthValue = MyClass.MyInstance.Health;


You can also call a sound effect function from anywhere in your game.

For example, like this.

MyClass.MyInstance.PlaySound(SoundFx); 

If a variable or function exists on the singleton and is publicly accessible, other scripts can use it without having to set up a reference to it first by passing a reference to it.

This just makes it easier to link the different parts of the game together.

But, as said earlier, the same way it can help you linking different classes to be used throughout your game, Singletons can also cause problems.

Using a singleton to solve one problem can lead to other problems later. So you need to be aware of what can happen when you use a singleton in your project.

So what is the worst thing that could happen to you and to your game?

What could go wrong with singletons?


In general, singular projects can be difficult to manage as they grow in size.

This can make it difficult to make changes or additions to the project, which in turn makes testing difficult.

If you are planning to use a singleton, you may have heard these objections.

What exactly are the problems with using a singleton?

The biggest risk of singletons lies in what makes them useful in the first place: global access.

For example, allowing all scripts to access a Game Manager singleton can be very useful.

How is this a problem?

Let’s take an example, you want to implement an audio manager to be used consistently across your game.

Trying to manually connect all objects that want to play sound to an audio manager script is usually undesirable, complex and heavy for the coder.

Likewise, trying to find an audio manager in a scene every time a new object is created that needs an audio manager can be very bad for performance and the functions that searches for objects in the memory are very demanding on CPU and memory accesses and will penalize you heavlly in a drop of the frame rate…

In this case creating a Singletons for the audio managers could be useful

Let’s say you create an Audio Manager singleton with a Play Sound Effect function.

It looks like this.

public void PlaySound(AudioClip clip)
{
audioSource.PlayOneShot(clip).
}

Now, if you want to play a sound, just call the audio manager and pass it the sound effect.

For example like this.

public AudioClip soundEffect;
void Start()
{
     MyClass.MyInstance.PlaySound(SoundFx).
}


Simple and convenient…

But are there any problems with this method?

If affirmative, how a simple piece of code can lead to problems?

The problem with using singletons like this is that you have to change the way sound effects are triggered.

For example, if you start with this method, you can add sound effect triggers as needed and call sound effect functions from different scripts.

Depending on the size of your game, you may find yourself calling scripts in dozens or hundreds of different places, all in exactly the same way.

When you add sounds to your game, you may find that some sounds are louder than others and some sounds are more repetitive.

So you might consider adjusting the volume when a sound is triggered so that clips can play at different levels, or adding more variation to the sound when it’s triggered so that it doesn’t repeat, which will mean making some modifications to the functions in the Singleton, by adding also a couple of extra parameters to manage the sound volume and other sounds characteristics..

But, the problem is that all those functions, which are simple to code, are now spread all your code across the game, so you will have to find all of them and make the changes on by one to adjust the new parameters that you have included

It would probably be difficult to do this now, since all the sound triggers in the game are connected directly to the audio manager, which just passes the audio clip reference and calls the function as is.

This means that you have to modify all the scripts that call the audio manager to change the current behavior of the manager.

This is a very important tasks, especially if your game is quite large..

How could we avoid this complexity? Welll, by using instead Event Triggers.

Modular event triggers in Unity


When using singletons, it is easy to specify certain functions early on, making it difficult to change them later.

Events, however, are by design a convenient way to change the response to an event in the game without changing the trigger.

For example, you can create a simple event system and trigger a sound effect event for any object, but the response to that event (what sound is played, how it is handled, etc.) is done in the audio manager and can easily be changed without changing the trigger changes.

This is possible with singletons, but events are more forgiving if you want to change something later because the trigger can easily be removed from the response.

It’s not easy to create a singleton and then change its behavior, but that’s not necessarily a big problem.

For example, it is difficult, but not impossible, to change the function of a sound effect after the fact.

However, it makes sense to treat all public functions and variables that are accessible to other objects through a singleton as immutable.

By including the functions you think you need early, you minimize the risk of having to change those functions later.

Audio managers may be suitable for singletons because of their global access and presence in the scene.

In short, the main benefits of using singletons are consistent with the problems of the task.

But.

Just because a singleton seems like a good solution to a problem doesn’t mean it is.

And as before, how you use the singleton now will affect how the game develops later.

This is especially true when using single players.

Singleton player objects


A common use of singletons is to communicate certain characteristics of the player to other scripts in the game, such as the player’s position and current fitness.

If you think about it, this makes a lot of sense. Almost every object in the game will respond in some way to the player’s actions, so it seems like a good idea to give these objects easy access to the player and his scripts.

But what problems arise from using Singleton specifically in the player game object?

In general, deciding whether or not to use a player object singleton is similar to deciding whether or not to use a static variable.

Static variables (essentially global variables) are generally fine if you intend to have only one variable of that type in your game.

Singletons have similar weaknesses.

Scripts that need to refer to singletons refer to them directly, so each script is essentially closely tied to the player.

This means that it can be very difficult or impossible to add a second player later, depending on how tightly integrated the player’s singleton is with the scripts that need to access it.

In general, using singletons to manage single objects such as players is riskier than using singletons to manage the game system.

Also, using singletons in this way can lead to serious problems if it is not clear what kind of game you want to make or what features you want to add in the future, even if it is not a problem now.

What is the right way to use singletons in Unity?


There is no single right way to use a singleton, but the problems that can be caused by its use usually depend on the project and what you plan to do with it.

This is because the risk of using a singleton is more related to the way it is used and less to the singleton itself.

For example, if you use a singleton for a player object and have the option of adding more players later, you’re likely to run into big problems.

Also, global access to the file storage system could cause problems if two scripts try to save the game at the same time.

Also, if you create a singleton before you know what you want to do, it may be difficult to update it if you change something later.

But.

There will be cases where it makes a lot of sense to use a singleton.

Especially when it can make the difference between releasing a game and not.

Many people advise you to avoid singletons, and there are certainly good reasons not to use them, but if you understand the risks and use them carefully, they can be a very useful tool to help you manage your game more easily.

We have reached the end of this tutorial and it’s your turn, now to work and try it by yourself, as this is the best way to learn.
Also, we would like to hear your opinion as to keep improving our set of tutorials on youtube and in our blog.

Do you use singletons in your games?
