Join Jonathan Sears for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing items with the Inventory, part of SteamOS for Developers First Look.
…So we've talked a little bit about items that your users can create.…And share with other people online.…But naturally they're going to need a place to store those.…So let's take a look at inventory.…I'm going to get there by clicking on my profile picture, my avatar if you will.…And then I'm going to go to my name, and click Inventory.…So, as you can see here, I have four games that are listed.…One of whom is just the regular Steam service.…Let's take a look and see what type of items there are.…So I have a couple of different kinds items here.…I've got things like a badge.…
I've got a hat.…I've got a couple of different weapons and a healing device.…I've even got one item that I received from playing a completely different game.…You can enable this type of functionality in your game as well.…I played Spiral Knights, and I got this…helmet that resembles the character in Spiral Knights.…So that might be a neat thing to do for your game.…Maybe you want to give people an added benefit for playing your game.…
