PocketBase is an open-source backend server software, featuring an embedded SQLite database with real-time subscriptions, built-in authentication management, a convenient dashboard UI, and a simple REST-like API.
While PocketBase itself isn't specifically targeted towards game development, the "PocketBase for Clickteam Fusion" extension by Stone Orb Software has been created to make it easy for ClickTeam Fusion developers to use PocketBase for their indie game development.
The PocketBase for Clickteam extension allows developers to easily customize data types, also known as collections. The intuitive interface supports the definition, modification, and deletion of custom data types. Developers can specify fields, data types, add validation rules, and set up relationships between different collections. This high level of customization makes it simple to model game data and adjust it as the game evolves throughout development.
The benefits of using PocketBase, combined with the PocketBase for Clickteam Fusion extension, for indie video game developers include:
- Flexibility: The ability to define custom collections lets developers structure their data in a way that best suits their game, simplifying the task of building and maintaining their backend.
- Efficiency: PocketBase, especially with the Clickteam extension, handles many of the common tasks associated with backend development, freeing up developers to focus more on building their game rather than managing servers.
- Cost-effective: Being open-source, PocketBase can be more affordable than managed solutions, making it a good choice for indie developers with limited budgets.
- Community and Support: With its open-source nature, PocketBase has a growing and supportive community of developers.
- Integration: The PocketBase for Clickteam extension offers seamless integration with Clickteam Fusion, making it easy to implement features such as account registration and login, inventory management, trade systems, and much more using simple Actions and Conditions like any Clickteam Fusion Extension.
By utilizing PocketBase and the PocketBase for Clickteam Fusion extension, indie game developers can create a robust and flexible backend for their games, speeding up development and improving the overall quality of their projects.
