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

Overview of the architecture

Directory ℹ️ Description
Core GDevelop core library, containing common tools to implement the IDE and work with GDevelop games.
GDCpp The C++ game engine, used to build native games (not used in GDevelop 5).
GDJS The game engine, written in TypeScript, using PixiJS (WebGL), powering all GDevelop games.
GDevelop.js Bindings of Core/GDCpp/GDJS and Extensions to JavaScript (with WebAssembly), used by the IDE.
newIDE The game editor, written in JavaScript with React, Electron and PixiJS.
Extensions Extensions for the game engine, providing objects, behaviors, events and new features.
