Our current clients include Halfbrick, East Side Games, Old Skull Games and more!

Technologically Advanced

Beamable is under constant development and is continuously improving, incorporating the latest trends and features in LiveOps and Live Game functionality. Only Beamable offers the unique ability to write C# client and server code in a unified developer workflow eliminating the need for complex game server integrations. Never leave Unity again.

Sign up for Beamable

Sign up for the Beamable Live Game platform. Or, if you are already an Amazon AWS customer, you can also sign up for Beamable on the AWS marketplace. Beamable is free to develop, so you don’t have to make a purchasing or usage tier decision until you are ready to ship.

Migrate Playfab Features

Beamable offers many of the same features as Playfab. This includes Authentication, Leaderboards, Multiplayer, Teams, and more. For each, migrate using the equivalent Beamable feature. You can see an entire list of Beamable features in our documentation.

Migrate static Playfab Data to Beamable

Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) Playfab Catalogue, Title, and other game config data to Beamable Content so you are ready to test with live data. You could do this manually or create your own tools within Unity to speed up the process. Migrate using the Beamable Content feature. See our documentation for more info.

Build Custom Beamable Objects

You can create custom versions of the out-of-the-box Beamable objects. For example, you can use Beamable's "Item" content and customize it to create your own "Virtual Good" objects while still taking advantage of Beamables built-in API such as inventory, store, and items.
Optionally, you can create validation rules to help your team work efficiently. See https://docs.beamable.com/docs/adding-content-validation for more info.

Migrate Cloud Script to C# Microservices

All of your cloud scripts can be rewritten in C# as a Beamable Microservice. It will run locally in a Docker container and then be lifted up to the Beamable fully-managed cloud. Your C# server code will live side by side with your client code enabling debug, unified source control, and a unified developer workflow.

Replace Playfab features with Custom Content

Even if Beamable does not offer a specific feature you need, there is a solution. Migrate using the Beamable Content feature. See our documentation for more info.

Convert your PlayerData

Beamable has a variety of features to help you handle your player data in a way that best suits your games.

Incrementally Migrate Player Data

Switch your App over to Beamable's SDK and start migratingPlayfab players over to Beamable when they first login. You can do this by authoring a C# Microservice that will watch for new players or players tagged with a migration player stat. The ETL service will pull their data, log them out of Playfab, create their Beamable account, transform the player data into Beamable format, and log the player into their new Beamable account. All of this is seamless to the player.

Strip out the Playfab SDK and launch your Beamable-only client

Once all of your players and their data are migrated, strip out the Playfab SDK and promote a new Beamable-only client. You are now running on Beamable 100%!
