Rec Room announced the Rec Room Studio during the Rec Con 2022
Rec Room Studio is a Unity-based feature set that gives artists brand-new, potent creation tools to design and distribute rooms using the Unity Editor’s capabilities. Built-in collaboration with Unity, developers can easily add items and components to pre-existing rooms as well as make and share their own custom textures, animations, and other elements.
The Maker Pen allows for collaborative editing of Rec Room Studio projects with other players, making the use of expert tools to produce high-quality material even simpler. Anyone interested in checking out the early private beta program for Rec Room Studio can sign up for further information. Milestone highlights for Rec Room include:
- In the last six years, Rec Room has welcomed more than 82M lifetime users to the platform, creating, sharing, and playing games and other digital experiences.
- Creators have built more rooms in Rec Room than apps on the iOS App Store.
