Nakama is Japanese for ‘friend’. So, not only are friendships integral to how Nakama works, but they’re also quick to implement.

Groups and clans

Who wants to play every game alone? With groups and clans, you can deliver an added level of depth to your gameplay, giving players another reason to come back time and again.

Messaging, status, and notifications

Whether your players are building lasting friendships or swapping casual gameplay tips, in-game messaging draws individuals and groups together in a way that brings them back to your game time and again.

With the help of Heroic Labs engineers we implemented Nakama into our project which enabled our studio to quickly develop and ship a title on an entirely new games platform in record time.
