I want to implement a turn based multiplayer game for mobile devices and I am looking for an network solution.
Now, there is google play game services, which seems really nice. Unfortantly it forces players to have a google account for playing. I do not like that.
Instead I would prefer a solution, where the player has the choice of logging in with a google or facebook account, create a game specific account or play as guest. As far as I can tell, that is not possible with google play services.
So I am looking at other cloud services. And I was wondering if amazon SNS would be suited.
As anyone experience with Amazon SNS for games? I would have to do the "login via facebook/google" myself, but I hope I can do that ...
My Idea would be:
* Create a amazon SNS topic for every new game.
* Every player of the game subscribes to the topic.
* Game turns are send via the topic.
Does that work in practice?
Thanks for sharing thoughts and experience!
