The Nakama open source server solution and the expertise provided by Heroic offered my team the freedom to focus on providing the best user experience for our players. The Heroic team helped us through development problems by walking us through building our own custom LUA endpoints, or extending the Nakama server for our use cases in a timely manner in patches and new releases.
