Open-source game making software for everyone


GDevelop is an open-source, cross-platform game creator designed to be used by everyone - no programming skills required.

You can make simple projects for fun or create ambitious indie games: platformers, puzzles, shoot 'em up, strategy, 8-bit... 👾

Nice wiki, forum, sample games, tutorials.

I REALLY recommand GDevelop to start creating your own Web or native (Windows, Linux) 2D games!

I started using GDevelop in 2011! And year after year, it is improving!

Great piece of software, Really!


Simple, reliable, fast platform to develop 2D games.

Great software, nice community !


There is really nice wiki... For me documentation could be a little bit better though...

Thanks for your review Damien! Nice to see that GDevelop is useful 😃I do plan to improve the documentation, I think we can get something nice by having links to examples included in it too!

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.


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


Complex games are difficult to make

Hey Pete, thanks for the review! 👍 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...) 😉

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!

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! 😊
Slow and not weak. Terrible workflow. Very unreliable. Useful for learning purposes only.
