A few words with Larry from Armor Games Studios...

Could you tell us a little about your project?
Netlify
Armor Games started as an online portal for Flash, Unity & HTML based browser games. As the market for casual games evolved so did Armor Games. With the launch of the ArmorGamesStudio.com website we are introducing our new game publishing brand to the world. Armor Games Studios is an indie game publishing company focused on creative new indie games and talented developers. We are no longer tied to just browser games but are actively helping game developers succeed across all platforms, including iOS, Android, Amazon Fire, Steam, Xbox and Playstation (just to name a few). Behind the scenes at ArmorGames.com we manage a lot of servers . For the new Studio brand, we did not want to bring another web server online nor piggy back it off something else. It was important to balance serverless with the ability to create our own custom workflow for rapid and rock-solid content publishing. We found that using Netlify, Contentful & Algolia we were able to create a hosting and content workflow that is very inexpensive, very stable and highly adaptable for future needs.

Why did you choose Netlify?
Netlify
The bottom line is Price and Feature set. We were able to start for free and move into a very reasonable paid plan. The SSL feature, webhooks & integrations, GitHub based workflow, support for node based deployments and even team management all provided great value for our development needs on this project.

What is your favorite thing about the Netlify Platform?
Netlify

Hard to pick one, Free tier (including SSL cert!), GitHub integration with Branch and Pull Request based previews, instant site updates (instant cache invalidation)… url proxying to add dynamic features to a static site!

Overall we have been very happy with the tool set and hence we wanted to share our site with your team.
