Test your integration with Amazon GameLift

Amazon GameLift supports fast iteration when testing your game servers. This topic guides you through the types of testing available.

Custom game servers

Use Amazon GameLift to integrate hardware anywhere in your environment into your Amazon GameLift game hosting architecture. Amazon GameLift Anywhere registers your hardware with Amazon GameLift in an Anywhere fleet, so that you can test using your own local development computer. For more information about testing with Amazon GameLift Anywhere, see Test your integration using Amazon GameLift Anywhere fleets. For more information about using Amazon GameLift Anywhere for hosting your games with on-premises solutions, see Choosing Amazon GameLift compute resources.

Realtime Servers

With Realtime Servers, you can update your scripts at any time. When you update a Realtime script, Amazon GameLift distributes the new version to your hosting resources within minutes. After Amazon GameLift deploys the new script, all new game sessions use the new script version. After Amazon GameLift deploys the new script, you can begin testing immediately.
