In this episode we bring you a solution to help you solve the aforementioned problems, in addition to allow you to save player’s progress in the cloud and make your game multiplayer. It sounds great, right? Well, it is.

This week we are talking about Google Play Services. This extremely useful suite of services allow you to have global and social leaderboards in your game, and make it easier for players to invite their friends to play. It also offers a very straightforward way to create challenges and quests that will keep players engaged and coming back for more. In this episode we not only explain Google Play Services’ features and benefits, we take it a step further, and talk about some of the game design decisions that you will have to make when integrating these services into your game.
