Google has gone ahead and released Games for Google+ (and with the option to “mute” them). That’s right, just like Facebook, except without all the clutter, ads, and stuff like that. It will have all the usual things, like achievements, recent games played, which games certain circles are playing, and so on. The launch titles include, Bejeweled, Angry Birds, Dragon Age: Legends and a few more seen at the source link. Also, here’s what Google+ mainly has to say:
“Today we’re adding games to Google+. With the Google+ project, we want to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to the web. But sharing is about more than just conversations. The experiences we have together are just as important to our relationships. We want to make playing games online just as fun, and just as meaningful, as playing in real life.”
And interestingly, how it’ll work:
“When you’re ready to play, the Games page is waiting—click the games button at the top of your stream. You can see the latest game updates from your circles, browse the invites you’ve received and check out games that people you know have played recently. The Games page is also where your game accomplishments will appear. So you can comfortably share your latest high score—your circles will only see the updates when they’re interested in playing games too.”
“If you’re not interested in games, it’s easy to ignore them. Your stream will remain focused on conversations with the people you care about.”
Google also let game devs know how they can code games for Google+, seen at their Developer Blog.
