Google Provides Android Developers With New C++ Cross Platform Tools


Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Google has updated new tools that are now available to game developers to facilitate cross platform development. These include: updated Play Games cross-platform C++ SDK,  updated Play Games SDK for iOS, and new game services alerts in the developer console.

Updated Play Games C++ SDK

Google has updated the Google Play Games C++ SDK with more cross-platform support for new services and experiences. The Google Play Games C++ SDK provides a C++ API for use with Google Play Game Services, and is meant for developers who have an existing C++ implementation of their game. It is especially geared toward providing portability between Android and iOS. The new C++ SDK now supports all of the following:

- Turn-based Multiplayer (TBMP).
- Quests and Events.
- Saved Games.

Updated Play Games iOS SDK

The Play Games iOS SDK is now updated with support for Quests and Saved Games, enabling iOS developers to integrate the latest services and experiences with the Objective-C based tool-chains they are already familiar with. It now supports all of the following:

- Quests and Events.
- Saved Games.
- Game Profile and related Player XP APIs — the SDK now also provides the UI for Game Profile and access to Player XP data for players.

Game Services Alerts

Also, game developers can now see new types of games services alerts in the developer console to learn about issues that might be affecting users' gameplay experiences. For example, if an app implements Game Gifts, developers will now see an alert when players are unable to send a gift; if an app implements Multiplayer, there will be an alert when players are unable to join a match.
