Our publishing workflow is a straightforward process that can be completed in a few easy steps.
After you've upgraded to a developer account, simply upload your WebXR game using the upload wizard on the Developer Dashboard.
Once uploaded, you can preview and test your game to make sure everything is working as expected before publishing. Once you're satisfied with your experience, simply submit it via the heyVR Developer Dashboard.
We will test your game on multiple devices and platforms to ensure that it works as expected for all users. After a quick review, we'll inform you of any issues. If everything looks good, you'll receive a notification that your game is published to our platform and available to the whole world!
After your game is published, you will be able to monitor its performance and user engagement through the heyVR Developer Dashboard, which includes tracking metrics such as the number of views, interactions, and user feedback. Not all of these features are available as of yet, but will be so in the future.
Our publishing workflow is designed to be simple, efficient, and user-friendly, allowing you to focus on creating amazing WebXR content without having to worry about the technical details of publishing and distribution. Expect new features and tools to be added over time to help you grow your revenue and reach ever more players!
To ensure a high-quality experience for our users, we have several requirements for games to be released on heyVR.
Submissions must be a WebXR game and/or playable experience, and have a reasonable file size.
Submissions must adhere to our content guidelines. This includes not allowing hate speech, violence, sexually explicit material, or other forms of inappropriate content.
Submissions should be optimized for performance and must not have any major technical issues that would affect the user's experience.
Our team will review the submission and provide feedback. This usually takes a day or two. Upon approval, your game will be published and made available for users to discover and play on heyVR.
Tips and Best Practices
Optimize for performance
Performance is critical for VR experiences, as lag or stuttering can break the immersion, or worse: cause nausea and headache. In case you do not want to worry about manually optimizing your app/game yourself, Wonderland Engine implements various web specific optimizations that allow you to focus on your project instead of performance.
