Setting up Amazon Lumberyard

Open 3D Engine (O3DE), the successor to Lumberyard, is now available in Developer Preview. Download O3DE or visit the AWS Game Tech blog to learn more.

Amazon Lumberyard has a two-part installation process:

  1. The installer application downloads, extracts, and installs Lumberyard.

  2. Setup Assistant configures and installs additional software based on your development needs. Jump right in to the Lumberyard Editor with an Express Install or customize Lumberyard's features for your development needs with a Custom Install.


    To create and build new projects, or add gems to existing projects, either select Custom Install or run Setup Assistant again later to enable this functionality.

After Lumberyard is installed, use Project Configurator to select a project or create a new project. The following sections detail the minimum requirements for Lumberyard and guide you through the installation process.
