Amazon releases two videos, showing what game developers can achieve with its Lumberyard Engine

Amazon has released two GDC 2017 videos, showing what game developers can achieve with its Lumberyard Engine. Amazon Lumberyard is described as a free AAA game engine deeply integrated with the AWS Cloud and Twitch, empowering game developers to bring their most ambitious creations to life.

The first video shows the Lost tech demo, featuring a variety of techniques running in real-time, including physically-based rendering, photogrammetry, and world-class performance modularity.

The second video features the Bistro tech demo, showcasing a range of cutting-edge rendering techniques running in real-time, including Specular Anti-aliasing, Temporal Anti-aliasing, and Order Independent Transparency.

We’ve also included a third video dedicated to Amazon’s Engine, in which developers talk a bit about it.

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
