FAQ
How much does UDP cost to use?
UDP is entirely free for developers.
Do I need to sign up directly with UDP stores?
Yes. You enter a direct relationship with each of the UDP stores you distribute your games to. That said, UDP will link your store account with your Unity ID so that once you’re signed up to a store you can submit your game directly to it from UDP.
What happens when I submit my game to the stores?
Your game will be reviewed by each store you submit it to. If a store accepts your game, the store’s team will set its launch in motion. You will always be notified of the progress of your submission via UDP.
Does UDP support non-Unity games?
For now, UDP is only for games made with Unity.
What devices does UDP work with?
Unity-supported Android mobile form factors.
Do I have to submit my game to all UDP stores?
No. You choose which stores you want to submit your game to. For app stores with regional or global reach, you can control which countries your game will be distributed to.
Does Unity handle the store payouts?
No. Stores will pay you directly.
