Setting up the core game services locally can be a tricky business. If you don't fancy installing our core game services and dependencies on your most favorite dev box,
have a look at our Vagrant project clone the gameon repository,
cd gameon, and run
vagrant up, which will set up a virtual machine ready for local development.
*Edit 2017-09-13: As noted above, using Vagrant for local development is now even easier. The
gameontext/gameon-vagrant repository was retired in favor of a Vagrantfile in the
gameontext/gameon repository itself.
