Why do I need a Microsoft account or an Xbox Live account?

Microsoft Casual Games are designed to have all of your game data, achievements, rewards and history saved online on the cloud. This not only frees up your local drives, but if you switch computers, buy a new one, or if your computer crashes, all of your games will be there waiting for you when you sign in! All your data is saved in the cloud on your Xbox Live account, and you don’t need an Xbox to play or save your games.

You need a Microsoft account so that the game can save your progress data to the cloud. The Microsoft account automatically gives you an Xbox account, where your game data is saved.
