so GOG is becoming even more like steam?
Steam has many great features that users and devs love, there is nothing wrong with GoG bringing them here. You can choose to use them or not.
So there is a very cool and nice feature coming to GOG - we will be introducing user profiles very, very soon. But I won’t be revealing any details of the feature, as we want you guys to experience it first-hand rather than reading some PR bla-bla. Before it all goes live and will be available for you, we need to deal with all the formalities - launching profiles means adding new privacy settings on our end. We want to give you a heads-up, and that’s why today we’ve introduced the three new privacy settings on your GOG account, all connected to the profiles.
As with all privacy settings, you will find the three new options on your account, under „Orders & Settings” in the Privacy tab
. These settings allow you to set visibility for your profile summary (including your recent activity and recently active friends), your games on the profile and your friends on the profile - you can set them to „everyone”, „friends only”, or „only me”. The default settings are - „everyone” for your profile, and „friends only” for both your games and your friends. If you want, you can change those settings already, before we launch with profiles, and of course you can change those settings anytime you want.
Hope you’ll enjoy this new feature when it comes to GOG, and expect an official announcement very soon!
Will there be an API that lets user trusted 3rd parties access these profiles.
