Authentication is a required feature for most games:
1) The game must recognize the users.
2) Check if they have permission to play.
3) Make sure their previous progress is delivered to them.
Trail's solution for authentication is called AuthKit.
Before talking about Authkit, it is important to understand that users playing your game on the web aren't always registered users. Trail is an ultra-accessible platform meaning a player can access any game on the Trail platform at any time from any browser. Your game can be played by users that aren't logged in or even signed up to the Trail platform. This is where AuthKit comes in; it helps you verify and authenticate users on the Trail platform when required. It does so by hooking up to your backend and providing access to Trail's backend to verify any user logged in on the platform.
Authentication is handled differently game-to-game. Trail is happy to help with custom authentication solutions if it would be needed. Contact us through discord!
