The success of the pokemon go game prompted developers to go more towards making games based on the user's geographical location, and featured games such as The Walking Dead and Jurassic World and now Google is supporting developers to make more of these games.
The company announced that it has opened its own mapping platform in front of developers to make games based on the real reality and user geographical location more easily.
Google maps the developers' platform to three parts. The first, the most important, provides access to real-time map data as Google introduces a new application development package for the famous Unity engine to facilitate the integration of map data into games.
Google also introduced an API software interface that allows developers to create a real-world gaming experience in real life. Google helps developers find suitable venues for games around the world.
Google has eliminated one of the most important obstacles to the development of such games, namely map data, as the success of pokemon go came above the relative failure of the game Ingress of the same company developed, but benefited from the map data.
