Facebook launches Gameroom for PC gaming

Written by | Dev and Design, Facebook, Gaming


Facebook Gameroom for PC gaming (Arcade project) is a Windows-native client available as a free download for players worldwide. Within the new Facebook Gameroom, players can experience both web games and also native games built exclusively for the platform. Building native games for Facebook Gameroom brings many benefits for you and your players:

  • Facebook Gameroom for PC gaming focuses on gameplay for players, ensuring an exclusive and immersive gaming experience
  • Developing in Facebook Gameroom natively takes less time: it’s easier compared to HTML5 and gives better solutions around threading, debugging, networking and memory management
  • Facebook Gameroom provides better performance in terms of app launch timings and memory consumption in native games.

If I remember correctly, it was games that helped Facebook locked-in a lot of users, remember Farmville and Mafia Wars? You can download Gameroom by going to https://www.facebook.com/games, then click “Download Gameroom”.

For game developers using the Unity game development platform, Facebook created a video on how to integrate your Unity game with Facebook Gameroom.
