Memphis Game Devs: Google Play Games Services and Design Documents

This time we'll be focusing on Google Play Game Services. The Google Play Games plugin for Unity allows you to access the Google Play Games API through Unity's social interface. The plugin provides support for the following features of the Google Play Games API:

sign in

unlock/reveal/increment achievement

post score to leaderboard

cloud save read/write

show built-in achievement/leaderboards UI

turn-based multiplayer

real-time multiplayer

We will also be discussing Design Documents and hopefully getting started on one of our own.

A game design document (often abbreviated GDD) is a highly descriptive living design document of the design for a video game. A GDD is created and edited by the development team and it is primarily used in the video game industry to organize efforts within a development team. The document is created by the development team as result of collaboration between their designers, artists and programmers as a guiding vision which is used throughout the game development process. When a game is commissioned by a game publisher to the development team, the document must be created by the development team and it is often attached to the agreement between publisher and developer; the developer has to adhere to the GDD during game development process.

    Midsouth Makers can be a bit hard to find! Fortunately Google Maps now has its proper location (behind the maid service place) so please check Google Maps first if you've never been!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
