Uploading Your Game to Amazon GameLift

Before setting up computing resources to host your Amazon GameLift-enabled multiplayer game, you first need to create a game build and upload it to the Amazon GameLift service. A game build includes all the server executables and dependent files needed to run server processes and host game sessions. Once you've uploaded a build to Amazon GameLift, you can then create a fleet of computing resources to operate your game.

The topics in this section describe how to package your game build and how to use the AWS CLI tool to upload it to Amazon GameLift.
