GDevelop based web app

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.

HTML5 & native games

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