Photon - Exit Game

Exit Games provides MMOG middleware technology. The core of Exit Games' technology is the network engine and socket server "Exit Games Photon" which allows the development of scalable and robust online games. This is offered as client and server SDKs which include libraries for various platforms - such as Unity, iOS, Android, Flash, Silverlight, MeeGo and more -, code samples and documentation.

Since all libraries connect to the same backend using the same commands and logics, cross-platform interactivity is possible, i.e., communication between different variants of an application running on various platforms (e.g. iOS vs. Browser vs. Android).

Photon's core is built on native C/C++ for performance reasons, while custom server-code is written in C#/.Net. Photon provides a reliability layer on top of UDP (RUDP) which can be switched-on/off on a per event basis.

Exit Game provides its Photon network engine in a software license model.
