Amazon Lumberyard is a free, cross-platform, 3D game engine for you to create the highest-quality games, connect your games to the vast compute and storage of the AWS Cloud, and engage fans on Twitch. Includes full source.
A collection of game-ready wilderness assets you can use to build a forest scene or populate your own levels with vegetation and other natural features as might be found in a woodlands scene.
A collection of character, prop, and level assets with a 1950’s America beach city theme, with a side serving of Zombies. You can use these assets to prototype using Lumberyard, or just to test Lumberyard features. This is packaged with sample game code and a level (Beach City NightTime) featuring the assets set in a dark and stormy night.
The Legacy Game Sample (CryEngine GameSDK) contains all the code for a first-person shooter game, including complex animated characters, vehicles and game AI. A sample level is provided, utilizing the woodland sample assets. The code in this sample represents the most complete way to make a game today, but as we improve our workflows and underlying systems to make it even easier to build games, we will not be updating this Sample. Instead we will be introducing new samples. It is recommended that developers use this as a reference for how to write code using the legacy internal systems in Lumberyard.
This download includes the source code and tools required to build and run the game and engine for developers who want to use Lumberyard to create iOS, Android, or macOS games on a Mac. The Asset Processor, Lumberyard Editor, and Remote Shader Compiler require Windows 7 or later to edit levels and build game assets. You must have access to a PC with Lumberyard installed and be able to navigate and run commands from Terminal on your Mac.
