overlap2d editor


Build Status Coverage Status Project status

Overlap2D is a 2D level and UI editor with an engine agnostic philosophy for game development. Made to separate coding from content, it enables developer to create rich content using images, animations, particle effects, light system, physics and complex grouped items.

Getting Started


Overlap2D currently supports libGDX based runtime which will easily render your content on Android, iOS and desktop, while letting you code on Java. It is of course open source: overlap2d-libgdx-runtime

Runtime is also in maven central, current version being: com.underwaterapps.overlap2druntime:overlap2d-runtime-libgdx:0.1.1-SNAPSHOT

Runtimes for other platforms are coming soon and everyone is welcome to contribute!
