Google is partnering with Unity on a dedicated ‘Android Game SDK’ project with the goal of improving game development efficiency.
Android is the most popular mobile operating system in the world, so it’s little surprise many game developers want to put their work in front of its audience. Google is more than happy to oblige and continues to find ways to invest in Android game development.
The project itself is based on the Android NDK and implements the Vulkan cross-platform graphics API which promises low overheads and ‘bare metal’ performance.
Currently, what’s available in the public view is limited. One library, Swappy, uses Vulkan and provides granular control over things such as the swap interval.
