Defold examples

Welcome to the Defold examples repo. Here you find a variety of Defold projects that you can use for study or as a base for your own work. If you want to scavenge them for assets that's fine too.

How am I allowed to use these assets?

All assets are free to use as you wish, commercially or non-commercially. We encourage some attribution to the artist.

The license for the "Alien World", "War Battles", "Ocean Commotion", "Magic Link" and "Runner" projects can be found at http://www.defold.com/about-terms/#licence (section 5).

The "Examples" project contains assets from http://kenney.nl/ that public domain (Creative Commons Zero) licensed. See https://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/

How do I include the assets in my projects?

If you are not comfortable using Git, you can download any of the examples separately in a zip archive.

  • Create a new project in Defold and open it in the editor
  • Right-click "game.project" in the Project Explorer and select Show in Finder (Mac) or Show in Explorer (PC)
  • Download and unpack the examples archive you want
  • Drag the contents of the archive to the location of the new project in the Finder/Explorer and replace the files in the project
  • The editor will pick up the new files and you are ready to go

Alternatively you can add a project as a library dependency in a project. Add the zip url to the "dependencies" in the project section in "game.project".

If you have any questions about these examples, please don't hesitate to visit the Defold forum.
