The web service department of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) keeps launching new products from time to time to keep up its users with technological advancements. In this series, AWS launched a new open source 3D engine named Lumberyard in the last week. Everything seemed normal unless experts read the terms and conditions, and found a clause related to the rise of the living dead.
Insights of Matter
When users go to section 57.10 of the AWS service terms, they can read some unusual stuff there. It says that Lumberyard is not developed to be used with safety-critical systems, “such as use in automated transportation systems, the operation of medical equipment, autonomous vehicles, nuclear facilities, aircraft or air traffic control, manned spacecraft or any sort of military use in connection with live combat.”
Everything sounds normal here, but the service terms further state that the conditions written above change in the case of a zombie outbreak. What these T&Cs written by AWS claim is when dead come alive, users need an extraordinary way to fight back and cloud-based gaming engine can fit the bill perfectly.
The service terms further state that the restriction will immediately be taken away in the case of a widespread viral infection transmitted via contact with bodily fluids or bites causing humans to reanimate to consume human flesh, brain, blood or nerve tissue and is most likely to destroy civilization.
What AWS Has To Say About Lumberyard
Game developers spend the maximum of their time on managing server infrastructure and building game engine components. With the help of Lumberyard, they can save this time and invest in building their games. It will not only reduce unnecessary frustration at times but also enhance the overall efficiency of game developers in the long term.
The senior management team of AWS is confident that Lumberyard will bring a revolution in the online gaming industry and prove to be one of the biggest findings in the coming years.
