Microservice StorageCreate and deploy a native Mongo database which we host. Persists user-specific and/or game-specific data.

Game makers can mix and match features to create the custom solution to meet the needs of the game design.

Each feature has read/write access from the game client itself and via Portal. Some features store information game-specifically and some store information player-specifically.

Case Study

Example: Your game offers 3 'save slots'. On the first game session, the player chooses one empty save slot and all player-specific progress is stored at the end of each level. On subsequent game sessions, the player may continue from an existing save slot or choose an empty one. This is a good fit for the Cloud Save.
