Game On! with Lagom

Lagom is a framework for developing reactive microservices in Java or Scala. Created by Lightbend, Lagom is built on the proven Akka toolkit and Play Framework, and provides a highly productive, guided path for creating responsive, resilient, elastic, message-driven applications.

Game On! is both a sample microservices application, and a throwback text adventure brought to you by the WASdev team at IBM.

Before you start

Get your participant ID from the workshop facilitators. It will be a two-digit number between 01 and 50. You will need this number to create your project.

Creating your project

  1. Clone this repository to your home directory:
    cd ~
    git clone
  2. Install the archetype:
    cd lagom-gameon-maven-archetype
    mvn install
  3. Create a project from the archetype in your home directory:
    cd ~
    mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=com.lightbend.lagom.gameon -DarchetypeArtifactId=lagom-gameon-maven-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=1.0-SNAPSHOT
    This will prompt you for several values. Enter them as shown below:
    • groupId: com.lightbend.lagom.gameon
    • artifactId: gameon17sNN (replace "NN" with your assigned participant ID, for example: "gameon17s50")
    • version: (press enter to accept the default)
    • package: (press enter to accept the default)

This creates a directory named gameon17sNN, with "NN" replaced with your assigned participant ID.

cd gameon17sNN

See the file in the created project for further instructions.
