We were at Develop last week helping the Amazon Lumberyard team on their stand. Mike and Matt were demoing Starter Game, our showcase content, for the new engine.
The Starter Game sample allows you to see how Lumberyard systems are used together to make a game. Starter Game is a small, third-person game that is built with the Lumberyard component entity system. In addition to component entities, Starter Game demonstrates bipedal locomotion, voxel-based global illumination, the time of day system, and more. In this sample, you play as Jack, a robot that has crashed on a distant planet. Jack can explore the world and must defend himself against enemy robots that occupy the planet. You can use Jack or any other assets in the Starter Game sample to prototype your own projects.
