Time for your mobile game to go global
As a mobile game developer, you want your game to reach as many people as possible. The challenge lies in the time and resources it takes to share a game worldwide – and that’s where the Unity Distribution Portal (UDP) comes in. Regardless of the size of your team, we make it easy to sell your game in Android alternative app stores everywhere.
Why alternative app marketplaces?
There are more than a billion reasons why you should consider submitting your game to alternative app marketplaces beyond just the Google Play store and App Store.
- An estimated 1.7 billion mobile gamers will be using alternative app stores by 2023.
- Around $5 billion dollars of revenue will be generated in stores outside of China.
- Third-party app marketplaces are growing faster than the Google Play store.
- The Unity Distribution Portal already reaches 1 billion+ players connected to these stores.
Build once, publish everywhere
The Unity Distribution Portal eliminates the need to create different builds for each app marketplace. With one single build, and one single metadata profile, easily submit your game to each of our partner stores from the UDP console.
