Persisting data is an important part of most games. Unity offers only a limited set of solutions, which means we have to look around for other options as well. In this tutorial series, we will explore the options given to us by Unity and third-party libraries.
Why Use Realm?
Fast and lightweight
Build data rich apps without draining device resources with Realm's lazy loading and zero-copy architecture.
Simple to start and scale
The object-oriented data model lets developers work directly with native objects – no ORMs or DAOs needed.
Built-in mobile to cloud sync
Real-time mobile to cloud data sync makes it easy to build interactive features that keep data up-to-date across multiple devices, users, and the backend.
Launch faster with intuitive APIs
Accelerate time-to-market with easy to learn, language-native APIs that simplify data access.
Build full mobile apps with ease
Realm Sync handles the most complex part of connecting your client to the backend with ease – guaranteeing an app that works as expected and syncs data reliably, every time.
