AWS GameTime is for gamers and budding game developers who want to go “behind-the-scenes” and learn how their favorite gaming experiences are made on AWS. The livestream is dedicated to showcasing game developers, playing their games and sharing their stories and expertise from the video game industry.

Video games are supposed to be played! AWS GameTime is the chance for game developers to show off exciting gameplay to our viewers. During the gameplay segment, we discover what makes their game fun to play and we get into the details behind design choices and unique game mechanics. Our viewers often get a sneak peak at the weird bloopers and hilarious gameplay bugs the developer team have worked hard to fix. As always, we encourage our viewers to share their feedback in the Twitch chat.

In 2023, gaming is for everyone and we are proud to support the game developer community

Video game creators are now able to share their vision and journey with a growing, global audience and gaming has been transformed by innovations in mobile devices, Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality and realistic, high-fidelity graphics. In 2023, gaming is truly for everyone, grandmas play Animal Crossing, teenagers brag about their Fortnite skills, and audience-controlled bots play Pokemon!

The AWS GameTime team are passionate about creating a unique livestream for gaming-related discussion and community. We would love to hear suggestions for games and game developers to be showcased on future AWS GameTime episodes. Come join AWS GameTime on Twitch at 4pm BST on the 1st Thursday of every month and check out our previous episodes on-demand on YouTube and Twitch.

AWS are also proud to continue supporting the game developer community and we want to highlight the best games from indie studios to AAA game studios built on AWS. Contact us to collaborate on a future episode or to start building next-generation gaming experiences on AWS for Games.
