Defold kicks-off our partner count-down to NG16, which will run until Friday 13 May:
We at King love playing games and creating them. Now we want to help more people realize their vision and do what they love. We want to provide everyone with the means to create more and better games. That’s why we are releasing the game engine Defold – for free, for everyone.
So what is Defold?
Defold is a really solid lightweight game engine when you want to make a cross-platform 2D game. We use it for all our new games.
Now we want to give Defold away for free. No strings attached.
Defold – by game developers, for consumers
Defold is built by game developers and was created as a consumer product from the start.
Create a great game
Performance has always been valued the most. Not only for run time, but also load times, workflows, scalability, and everything else that it takes to create a great game.
“We went from starting a new project to a ready prototype in less than three or four hours.” Johan Högfeldt, creator of Hammerwatch Coliseum
And it’s easy to deploy the games
Instead of deciding what platform a game should be made for in the beginning we think it’s better to wait and see how the game develops and then when it’s finished choose platform. So with the same code base you can easily build the game to six different platforms (HTML5, iOS, Android, PC, Mac and Linux).
Defold is not for everyone, but Defold is great if…
• You are making a 2D game.
• You want to target more than one platform.
• Your team consists of 2–10 people.
• You prefer creating games rather than building tech.
