Create your own games!

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

Events

What makes GDevelop unique and so easy to use are the events. Events are a powerful way to express the logic of your game, without having to learn a programming language.

Events are composed of conditions, on the left, and actions that are run when conditions are fulfilled

When Space is pressed, the character animation and a sound are played. If a bomb touches the character, they are both destroyed.

Create HTML5, mobile and native games

GDevelop's flexible architecture allows you to choose if you want to create an HTML5 game that can be played on the web and exported to iOS and Android, or a native game for your operating system. You can also activate both platforms and export your game everywhere!
