GameLift Sample Code

Does a collection of GameLift service samples exist? I'm developing a Battle Royale game in Unity using the Unity Plugin for GameLift and I have the basics functioning.. starting with CloudFormation template deployment, FlexMatch with game session queue, and automatic backfill. Now I'm starting to build a Lobby system, where a player can create/join/apply to join/invite to join other online clients. This seems like something that should exist in sample code (CloudFormation template, Lambda files, DynamoDB tables, SNS Topic Event Handlers, etc.). Does it? I may have it built and working by the time I get a response here, but here's what I'm thinking. LobbyTable LobbyId PlayerId # lobby owner TicketId # matchmaking ticket id PlayerLobbyTable PlayerId LobbyId Lambda functions to handle setting up a table items when a player: creates a lobby # creates LobbyTable item for PlayerId as owner application/invitation is accepted # creates PlayerLobbyTable item for PlayerId leaves/booted from lobby # deletes PlayerLobbyTable item of leaving PlayerId, picks new lobby owner and assigns if anyone remains in lobby or deletes LobbyTable for LobbyId if no players remain change lobby owner # changes LobbyTable PlayerId to new lobby owner update matchmaking ticket id # when FlexMatch MatchmakingSucceeded event, add IpAddress, Port, DnsName, etc. attributes to LobbyTable item, send message to all players in lobby that the matchmaking succeeded. Thank you.

[Announcement] AWS announces support for Android, iOS, and MacOS games with AWS GameKit for Unreal Engine

AWS GameKit is now extended to support Android, iOS, and MacOS games developed with Unreal Engine. AWS GameKit, [launched on March 23, 2022](https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2022/03/aws-gamekit-unreal-engine/), gives game developers a powerful tool set to quickly and easily build AWS powered game features directly from the Unreal Editor. With today's update, the AWS GameKit plugin for Unreal Engine now supports developers who are building games for Win 64, Android, iOS, and MacOS. Game developers can use the AWS GameKit plugin for Unreal Engine to integrate the following cloud-based game features: Identity and Authentication, Achievements, Game State Cloud Saving, and User Gameplay Data. With this release, these features can now be configured and packaged into games that run on mobile devices and PC. AWS GameKit includes complete solution for each game feature and an architecture design based on the [AWS Well-Architected Framework](https://aws.amazon.com/architecture/well-architected/?wa-lens-whitepapers.sort-by=item.additionalFields.sortDate&wa-lens-whitepapers.sort-order=desc). Each feature comes with an AWS CloudFormation template for the backend architecture, plugin controls to manage the backend from the Unreal Editor, and sample C++ code and Blueprint assets to help you integrate the feature into your game. AWS CloudFormation templates provision all of the AWS resources needed to power each game feature and can be set up with just a few clicks and no prior experience with AWS tools and services. After the game backend is configured, simply add cloud-based feature functionality to the game client by calling the AWS GameKit API. AWS GameKit is a powerful tool set for game developers who want to self-manage a game's cloud resources. Each feature is fully customizable and runs in the developer's AWS account. Get started fast with the core AWS GameKit solutions, and customize and extend build to meet the needs of your game. AWS GameKit provides access to the source code to give visibility into each game feature and the ability to customize. With AWS GameKit, you can deploy backend services for your game to any of 17 AWS Regions, depending on resource availability for each of the game features. These AWS Regions include: US East (Ohio, N. Virginia), US West (Oregon, N. California), Canada (Central), South America (Sao Paulo), EU (Ireland, London, Paris, Frankfurt), Europe (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney), Middle East (Bahrain).
