Now you can have your game automatically show itself off on Discord servers and even use the join game and spectate features for multiplayer games.

For anyone who does not know, Discord presence is a valuable marketing tool. You create an appid on Discord, and then use that appid in game. Then when people play your game (if they have it enabled, it’s enabled by default) their friends on Discord will be able to see that they are playing your game. If people belong to any discord servers (basically private chat rooms) their presence status will also show up there. So adding this can help your game to spread in an organic way.

UPDATE: The v1.0.1 update accidentally broke things for people on the stable editor channel. v1.0.2 below should be backwards compatible.
