Devlog #77 — Ads & Realm Academy

2 min readMay 29, 2023

Welcome to the 77th edition of the Realm Devlog!

This week the rewards V2 backend dropped along with the app builds going into final review for realease this week. A detailed explainer article will also be available upon the release of the new app and web vault to get you familiar with the system. The team are fine tuning the deployments to ensure all is working correctly in the live environments and the public release will be complete!

As usual the founders took to Twitter on Wednesday — you can catch that here.

Now, lets check out the dev!

In Game Ad Placements

Included in this major app release is the ad integrations, which will allow us to place live ad units within our 3D worlds. Therefore the team have been busy working on placing these units inside existing realms. Once a player jumps into a 3D world a request is sent to the advertisting bidding partners and an ad is dynamically returned to fill the slot — pretty cool!

We have to achieve the right balance of viewability whilst not affecting the experience and are always mindful not to appear spammy with advertising. Here we also show a bit of behind the scenes of placing ad units in the engine:

We think these ad units look super cool and fit into the context excellently — watch out for these inside Realm soon!

The next edition of Realm Academy from Arty is here! This time focussing on how to master colour palettes in the Realm builder — an important skill to ensure that your worlds stand out from the crowd.
