Like Amazon's other gaming acquisitions, GameSpark isn't a game developer - instead, the company provides what it describes as "the ultimate backend development platform for game developers." In so many words, GameSpark provides a framework for the creation of games.It stands to reason that, if GameSpark was indeed purchased, Amazon will now offer the services that GameSpark did at one point - presumably through its Amazon Lumberyard program.
GameSpark offers services like leaderboards and microtransactions, potentially offering additional services to Amazon's Lumberyard game development service. For its part, Amazon hasn't officially announced the acquisition, nor did it respond to request for comment as of publishing.
