Authenticate Your First Player
The first API call you'll want to make is verifying the player in order to register a session. LootLocker supports three different types of authentication methods depending on your game.
The Guest Login authentication method lets you assign each player a unique ID. This is common for web games or mobile games where you want to get the player into the game as quick as possible. We suggesting using Guest Login if you're just getting started with your game's development or still haven't decided which platform your game will be released on.
The Platform Login authentication type covers all login methods using First Party Platforms such as Steam, Xbox, and Sign in with Apple.

Our Whitelabel Login system provides your game with a custom username and password set up so each player can create their own account with your game.
