The completely free game engine Defold solves the technical issues we all have in common when making games. That way, you can focus on being creative and building a great game.
Wanna create great games faster? We’ve made Defold to let you focus on the important bits – to be creative when you create your next game. We’ll take care of the rest. In the end – it’s all about shipping games.
Defold is a turn-key solution. There’s nothing to set up or configure. Just and get creative.
Game logic is scripted in Lua. We opted for Lua since it’s easy to learn, easy to use, creates clean and small code and is well documented online.
The Defold editor supports Lua script editing with syntax coloring and auto-completion.
No more platform. One codebase, one click deployment to all build targets.
Quick builds, quick loading games, and quick production makes it easier to test your game and find any bugs. An ingame profiler helps you keep track of your code's performance.
Analytics built in with zero setup help you keep track of your game.
Defold has been built for efficient collaboration between disciplines. Everyone in your team shares the same project and version control is built in (but you can go custom if you want to).
Hot reloading of updated assets and logic into your running game creates a rapid workflow, promoting experimentation.
The fastest route from idea to finished game. One click deployment to six target platforms from the same code.
Out of the box analytics give you quick and easy insight into important stats such as:
