Welcome to the world
Starter Game is the first complete game sample to showcase the latest capabilities of Lumberyard, Amazon’s free AAA game engine. Think of it as a “what’s what” of engine features: component entities, real-time global illumination, 3rd person camera and locomotion, interiors and exteriors, particle effects—all of these come to life in Starter Game in a big way. It’s not just a quick path for getting started with the engine; it’s also a great example of what you can build today using Lumberyard.
We first gave you a glimpse of Starter Game at GDC 2017, and now we’re happy to give you the entire project for free, including full source and assets. Whether it serves as inspiration for a game of your own, or as a way of learning Lumberyard’s features, Starter Game is another tool for helping you reach your game dev goals.
