How & Why to Write an Autopatcher for Your Game


Doesn't Steam take care of patching for you? Why spend time writing your own? Using your own autopatcher will allow you to easily update your PC game across all distributors with a single command. You can release and test your game with an early audience without being limited on how many copies you can distribute or worrying about pre-launch reviews that hang around forever. It can even help with your community building efforts! Learn how to build your own autopatcher that will scale to high load.
