Link to GooglePlay?

Post#1 » 18 Sep 2018, 12:02

My question is easy:

Why isn't it possible to link/synchronize the Android game via GooglePlay?

Most other Android games have this feature and it would end this complicated synchronization procedure.

I know that you want to use Steam but that's just not possible for Android and GooglePlay is the way to go here.

Which part of the process do you find complicated exactly?

First: Know that there is a possibility to synchronize
Second: Choose a temporary name
Third: Create a forum account which is a pita
Fourth: Actually make the post and wait for the activation

Seriously, if I would not be interested in the development of this game, I would never consider creating a forum account for synchronizing my game procedure. Synchronization between several devices is a standard procedures of nowadays games. It's supposed to work in-game and with very few clicks.

GooglePlay gives you that possibility very easily..

So we're actually talking about forum account creation?

? About the fact that it is currently necessary to access another platform in order to synchronize my game.

GooglePlay is (just) the suggested solution.

And also it gives you control about your purchases et cetera. I want to reinstall a game, log in to a certain account (in-game) and have all my previous achievements and purchases restored.

I tried several plugins to implement Google Play sign-in in Unity3D (and link player accounts to android ids like on Steam) but it ended up with unresolved fails.
Trust me, it would help me A LOT!
I'll try again in the future...
