Forge Networking is a set of core networking libraries for developing Real-time Multiplayer games and applications (communication between multiple devices over the internet or local area network). Forge Networking works cross platform so your iOS can communicate with Windows Phone and even PC in real time! Forge Networking is stand alone, you can develop networked games with this one time purchase plugin. This will allow you to create all of the network communications you have enjoyed since day one of the beta. With Forge Networking, you can host servers at no CCU/DAU cost. Forge networking runs within a Unity instance so you get the full power of debugging in Unity as well as using all of the components and tools that Unity has to offer!
