It takes about a day for Pragma to set up the environment and the SDK. It generally takes a couple of days to hook up our APIs with the game client and server.
Studios can use the starter kit for as long as you’d like. Because it’s a fully hosted solution, you can walk away at any time, and integrate your workflows with whatever solution you choose to move towards.
Customers will have direct access to our integration team with a 12 hour SLA.
Access to more game platforms
More client authoritative features (loadouts not tied to accounts)
When studios are ready to start building out live service features and integrating them to the platform, such as player data and a live service game economy, the existing starter kit implementation will continue to work while the SDK feature set is extended as they start utilizing the full capabilities of Pragma. When studios are ready to build out beyond the starter kit features we’ll discuss the transition to the full enterprise plan.
We’ve written a blog on the limitations of SaaS for backend game engines which you can read more about here.
Other than that, here are some other differentiating points:
Ease of integration with engine native SDKs.
No resource sharing.
We provide person to person support (includes integration of our SDK into your game and provisioning the dedicated environment)
Unlike other managed services, when you grow out of the feature set, you can choose to stick with the platform and grow into the expanded set of enterprise features.
Built-in integrations to support game server hosting solutions, analytics platforms, and identity providers.
Our enterprise plan will give studios full customizability.
Pragma is currently working with a select group of studios in development.
A great underlying platform is essential in bringing players together. Pragma's technology lets us focus on the creative side of game development while offloading much of the complexity of shipping at scale.
