The blog of the GDevelop team, contributors and community.
To become a game developer starting from zero, GDevelop is a perfect solution: it’s free to use, easy to get started with, allow to make games for a large varities of platforms, and has a community ready to help you. Designing and making a video game are often the first things we think about - but it’s not enough! Publishing and monetizing a game are important parts of the lifecycle of a game - and can be difficult without the proper knowledge of these domains.
Global Game Jam 2021 is starting soon! During one (long) week-end (27 - 31 January), make a game and submit it to the jam - whatever your location! GDevelop is a great way to take part into the jam, as it has all the tools you need to quickly create and publish a game.
After a few month of work, we’re happy to announce an integration of Firebase in GDevelop! If you want to see it in action, check the Firebase example. Firebase is a Backend-as-a-Service. It offers multiple service for your app or game, is scalable, cheap, and powerful, while staying generic enough to be used for almost any project.
