One of the easiest ways to create a game server is to use server-in-a-box / off-the-shelf technologies like AWS’s GameSparks or Microsoft’s PlayFab.
It’s often assumed that plugging these tools into Unity is difficult; i’m going to show you that it isn’t!
“Off-The-Shelf” Game Servers Overview
Both Playfab and Gamesparks are excellent and equally as easy to integrate into Unity. But there are a few key differences in there implementations and ability that gives producers & developers pause to think about which one they should implement.
Because the two services are similar in what they do, the main differences between the two are the features, and how simple they are to set up and use.
The limitations of each platform can vary, and Playfab makes it very easy to see just what you can do with each payment tier (including free), and what capability you get for your money.
