Slate is an open-source storage network which makes it possible for people to store, collect, organize, and link files together. In this short tutorial, I will show you how to upload and play Unity WebGL games on IPFS using Slate in 4 simple steps. Let's dive right into it.

Zip the folder which contains your Unity WebGL game build.

Absolutely. I have put the game on a public slate so that you can view it. Here is a link to it: slate.host/daniel86/games/cid:QmNP...

I have edited the main post to include it. Thank you for pointing this out.
