A proprietary game engine with source code included. Amazon is refreshingly unapologetic about their motives in creating this game engine. The FAQ includes such brutally honest statements as:
Q. Can my game use an alternate web service instead of AWS?
No. If your game servers use a non-AWS alternate web service, we obviously don’t make any money

Such honesty, and restrictions, would seem to be required since access to the source code and specifications of Amazon's services being so public means developers could easily modify the engine to cut Amazon out of their profits from their business model.
