You remember the new Amazon Lumberyard engine I mentioned earlier right? No? Then have a quick look to familiarize yourself in the link before! Anyway, when you check the agreement with the Terms of Service, you’ll have to abide by various rules and regulations. Of which is void when you face a zombie apocalypse apparently. You can read the Terms of Service here where you can double check the silliness within the rules. According to clause 57.10:

“The Lumberyard Materials are not intended for use with life-critical or safety-critical systems, such as use in operation of medical equipment, automated transportation systems, autonomous vehicles, aircraft or air traffic control, nuclear facilities, manned spacecraft, or military use in connection with live combat. However, this restriction will not apply in the event of the occurrence (certified by the United States Centers for Disease Control or successor body) of a widespread viral infection transmitted via bites or contact with bodily fluids that causes human corpses to reanimate and seek to consume living human flesh, blood, brain or nerve tissue and is likely to result in the fall of organized civilization.”

To be fair, not a lot of people will read these, so it’s neat to see the team that wrote up these conditions had a sense of humor. That said, it’ll be good to know the engine will still be usable against the zombie horde when that eventually comes around.
