To be honest? What was Star Wars? George Lucas!!! It was cool back then in the 70 ties! Nothing ever before was like it..and it had character! 2 little shiny robots that behaved like humans! The n th sequal of something that was major in the past...! My advice? Start something new dont copy Star Wars...and give it some heart again! Put the industry to shame!!!😉 my 2 cents..

So why not finish the project but making it super generic? Strip all star wars terms out. Then when the game is finished, allow for modders to make a conversion mod that will reinsert the star wars material? That way he can finish it and we all can get what we want and no one has to give up on their dreams.

Amazon has recently presented a new cross-platform, competitive gaming service for game developers called GameOn. The platform allows users to integrate competitions into their games and give away real-world prizes fulfilled with the help of the online retailer, so there are now more possibilities to attract amateur players.

GameOn now supports leaderboards, leagues, and multi-round competitions. It also lets studios to generate custom events (local and regional competitions, for example). The platform can also deal with player-generated tournaments.

“Game developers have consistently told us they are looking for ways to increase player engagement and retention,” stated Amazon Competitive Gaming director Marja Koopmans. “We built Amazon GameOn to give developers simple, yet powerful tools to foster community through competitive gameplay.”

Millennial Esports’ Eden Games is using GameOn when scaling the size of the competitions of its racing game Gear.Club and the studio describes GameOn as a great timesaver. “GameOn has made it easy for us to add leaderboards and tournaments in-game,” stated Eden Games chief marketing officer Pascal Clarysse. “GameOn saved us months of development and a whole lot of maintenance and logistical overhead in the long run.”

GameOn is said to be based on Amazon Web Services (AWS), a secure cloud services platform that offers users database storage, Twitch integration, content delivery, and other possibilities. It is worth noting that AWS is used by more than 90% of the world’s biggest game companies.

Are you willing to try the new platform? You can use its APIs for free until May 1st. Then, the first 35,000 players per month are free for a limited time. After that, studios will have to pay $0.003 per play.
