Hi everyone! GDevelop is my personal open-source project since a bit of time now and I'm really excited to launch it on Product Hunt! The idea behind GDevelop is to allow anyone to create games without learning complex tools or programming languages. It has already being used successfully for various indie games, for teaching kids about game creation or in game jams. πŸ‘Ύ It is bundled with tons of examples and there are a few tutorials to get you started. Look forward to see what you think about it! 😊

Easy to use, plenty of examples, and a knowledgeable community makes for a great experience. Support is second to none and the developer is very responsive and the product is updated frequently.

Pros:

Fast prototyping, produce games without code, like construct, but open source and free :)

Cons:

Complex games are difficult to make

Hey Pete, thanks for the review! πŸ‘ It's indeed always a challenge to properly manage the growing complexity when making a large game. I do have a few ideas to make it easier to handle (search tools, smart profilers or hints...) πŸ˜‰

I have used the GDevelop for several years now and I can warmly recommend GD to all who are interested in making games. It really is simple and very easy to approach!

My GDevelop game project: https://gamejolt.com/games/tundm...

Pros:

Simple, Easy to use, Logical, Free, Perfect 2D game maker

Cons:

There are not many games to show the greatness of the Gdevelop, Sometimes it takes a lot of work to get feedback or answers from the forum

Hey Jukka, your game looks awesome! Is it ok if I take a screenshot (or send me your favorite one) to add it to the games showcase (http://gdevelop-app.com/games-sh...)? Good job! 😊
