Developers love Git for its speed, distributed nature, and powerful history traversal features. However it isn't (or rather, wasn't) a viable choice for professional game development due to critical flaws with tracking large binary assets. The Git Large File Storage (LFS) extension is a new jointly-developed standard from Bitbucket and GitHub that solves this problem by storing binary content in a specialized file store, and automatically swapping content in and out of your Git worktree. This allows game development teams to version code and game assets together, meaning programmers can collaborate more effectively with artists, animators, designers, audio engineers and all other creative contributors within the same codebase: drastically simplifying game development pipelines.
