I recently found out about the GoogleCloudPlatform/agones and was very interested in its potential as a platform for launching websocket servers for browser based games.
So I coded a up an experiment of doing just that. agones-simple is a launcher and server written in Go that will use the Agones SDK to create new servers on demand. I created it with sole purpose of learning more about Agones.
Honestly, this is a bit heavy handed, but it was a fun experiment.
