GDevelop logo

GDevelop is a full-featured, open-source game development software, allowing to create HTML5 and native games without any knowledge in a specific programming language. All the game logic is built up using an intuitive and powerful event-based system.

Development Roadmap


  • See the Showcase of games created with GDevelop.

  • Lil BUB's HELLO EARTH is a retro 8-bit mobile video game featuring Lil BUB. It's created with GDevelop and made up of equal parts science, magic, and heart.

    Lil Bub

    BUB is a very special, one of a kind critter. More specifically, she is the most amazing cat on the planet... and her game is made with GDevelop!

    See the project on Kickstarter! You can download the demo for iOS and Android.


  • The Core library, the native and HTML5 game engines, the IDE, and all extensions (respectively Core, GDCpp, GDJS, newIDE and Extensions folders) are under the MIT license.
  • The name, GDevelop, and its logo are the exclusive property of Florian Rival.

Games exported with GDevelop are based on the native and/or HTML5 game engines (see Core, GDCpp and GDJS folders): these engines are distributed under the MIT license so that you can distribute, sell or do anything with the games you created with GDevelop. In particular, you are not forced to make your game open source.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
