With Facebook Gameroom, the social media giant is introducing an easier way for developers to bring high-quality games to the PC to take full advantage of the CPU and GPU native power.

"The Facebook build target lets you deploy your projects to either the new Gameroom desktop app for Windows as a native Windows player, or to Facebook.com using Unity's WebGL support," said Sheree Lee, Technical Program Manager at Facebook, in a statement.
