Cloud Gem Samples Project

The Cloud Gem Samples Project includes sample levels that demonstrate the use of cloud gems that can add cloud-connected functionality to your game.

Use of the following levels is covered in the associated gem's topic found in the Cloud Gems documentation.

  • DynamicContentTest – Found under CloudGemTests, this level provides a test of the Dynamic Content Gem, which enables you to upload new or updated game assets to the cloud, that can be automatically downloaded to game clients.

  • PlayerAccountSample – Demonstrates the use of the Player Account Gem, which provides a standalone player authentication and management solution for your game.

  • CommunicatorSample – Demonstrates the use of the Web Communicator Gem, which can send AWS cloud service events to your game's connected editors or clients. Your editors or game clients can use this information to update themselves without having to poll AWS for updates.
