Aptos Labs, the core development team behind the Aptos blockchain, has announced the launch of Aptos GameStack, a development suite to help creators launch games that take advantage of crypto and NFTs.

And it’s rolling out in collaboration with Google Cloud via a partnership meant to benefit live service games that can use its cloud infrastructure.

Aptos GameStack integrates Google Cloud's solutions in data, analytics, and artificial intelligence/machine learning with Web3 game tools such as development SDKs and API gateways, along with access to 24/7 support.

According to Aptos Labs, GameStack is designed to make it so that developers can create, integrate, and connect Web3 elements to their games on the back end with less hassle.


"Games of any kind can now easily harness the power of Web3 technology with Aptos GameStack," said Jack Buser, Director for Games, Strategic Industries at Google, in the announcement. "Our partnership with Aptos Labs elevates the player benefits of Web3 technology into the mainstream of the games industry."

Key features of Aptos GameStack include the Aptos SDK on the Unity Asset Store for integrating wallets, transactions, and NFTs; a composable token standard for cost-efficient minting and asset ownership; “seamless sign-on solutions” for connecting to existing Web2 accounts; and frictionless payments with fiat on/off ramps.
