Defold lets you quickly build high performing, cross-platform games together with your team.
Performance concerns everything. Not only run time, but everything that has to do with creating a game.
Defold is made for working in teams – everything is always in sync. See your changes live in your game, without the need for a new build.
Yes, the Defold engine and editor with full functionality is completely free of charge. No hidden costs, fees or royalties. Just free.
Yes, we believe in "eating your own dogfood" and use it ourselves at King to develop several of our games.
It may seem out of the ordinary, that a commercial game company releases its core technology for free, but here’s how we see it: the more people who use Defold, the better the engine will be. By releasing Defold to the community, everyone can help making Defold better, by creating tutorials, by finding bugs, improving the documentation, and much more. And since King uses Defold internally, every day – the better the engine gets, the happier our internal developers will be. We believe great tech attracts great talent. All in all, we believe this ultimately leads to better games – not only for us at King, but for all game developers.

Defold was founded in 2010 by the game developers and colleagues Christian Murray and Ragnar Svensson. They both wanted to build casual indie games but got frustrated with the available tools. After working independently of each other on a new game engine they soon merged their ideas and technology and Defold was born. In 2014 King, the maker of Candy Crush and more, acquired Defold. It has since been used internally at King to create hit games like Blossom Blast Saga and more. In the fall of 2015 King made Defold available as a beta for indie developers and teams around the world, for free. In March, 2016, Defold was launched publicly, still for free.
