Hiro Game Development Kit #

The Hiro Game Development Kit (GDK) provides a library of tools for building games with Nakama in Unity and Unreal.

Hiro is a client-server library built on Nakama game server to add economy, social, and LiveOps features rapidly and flexibly to your game. It is available as a C# library to use with Unity engine, a C++ library to use with Unreal Engine, or a npm package for TypeScript, and a server package which gets loaded by the game server.
