Our forums allow you to quickly engage with other game developers using Amazon Lumberyard and Amazon GameLift. In addition, our forums provide an easy way for you to get help and answers from Amazon’s team of field engineers and technical artists who continually monitor the posts to answer your questions. You can browse our forums as a guest, and to post your own questions or responses all you need is a free Amazon account.

Forums are the best resource for finding answers or help for most of your questions. If you have time-sensitive or critical questions, we recommend Amazon Web Services Premium Support.
