Building blocks for gaming on Azure
Master Branch Status
Nether is a project composed of reusable set of building blocks, projects, services and best practices designed for Gaming workloads powered by Microsoft Azure, aimed to be beneficial for many type of game developers seeking inspiration or a fully implemented solution.
Getting started is an easy three step project:
- Sign up for an Azure Subscription if you don't already have one at https://azure.com
- Deploy the Base Architecture
- Pick one of the scenarios below, read through the scenario description and deploy using these instructions
That's it. Even though Azure definitively have a lot of SDKs and client tools that can help you out, the Server Less Architecture used in these scenarios require no local tools at all. In fact you could use your phone to deploy a leaderboard if you wanted to.
These are the scenarios that we currently have implemented in Nether. Each scenario contains some documentation as well as the required code to implement them. Unless otherwise stated, the scenarios all use the "base architecture".
- Simple Match Making (work in progress)
We welcome contributions. To contribute please follow the instructions on How to contribute?
