How does it work?
After implementing the Nexus Works SDK to your game, you will have a Game Client that will manage your game files and updates. The said game client will be responsible for pulling the game files and updates from an external file repository of your choice, like google drive or Dropbox.
The game client will also be responsible for detecting game updates through a simple text document that you will attach to your game files that utilizes the modified “Semantic Versioning” system.
After detecting a game update, the game client will automatically download the update and install it to your computer without affecting the overall file structure and integrity.
The appearance of the entire game client can also be fully customizable through the SDK. Game developers are allowed to fully customize how the game client looks. You may change the background image and the game icon to your liking and even change the UI structure to some extent.
The SDK also comes with a way to connect with the Nexus Vault launcher through a Metadata JSON file. The said file contains the game image, icon, title, and description that will be displayed on the Nexus Vault game launcher.
