MaxPlay’s GDS is the only game development solution that combines a service-oriented architecture with a high performance runtime engine to give developers the power to collaborate, create, and operate games more effectively in today’s increasingly complex, global, multi-platform environment.

Collaborate in Real-time

Whether sitting across the room or across the globe, your team members can now collaborate in real-time to create, test and tune every aspect of your game.

Maximize Your Game’s Performance

Our proprietary MaxCore™ runtime unlocks the real computing power available in modern devices. Built for the future, MaxCore™ is capable of handling the performance demands of VR & AR.

Develop Games Your Way

We understand that game developers crave control over their development tools. That's why we've designed a command-driven tool set with a highly customizable front-end, all running on a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Whether you want to tweak the front-end, change the business logic or even replace entire systems, we give you unprecedented power to control your environment.

Rapid Iteration

Making better games is about fast iteration. Change your game content, from art to game logic, and then push the game over-the-air to a PC, tablet, console or other device to see your changes instantly. Combined with real-time collaboration, you can now rapidly tune games to find the fun faster than ever before.

And that’s just the beginning

We have many more features that we’ll be announcing soon. If you’d like to make sure you get the latest on our development efforts let us know a bit about you and we’ll put you on the list.

Plus everything else you’d expect:

The popularity of PhysX™ does not stop there.
