POWERFUL 2D GAME DEV TOOLS

FEATURES

A game development platform that's perfect for indies or big studios!

Engine

The FlatRedBall game engine is cross-platform, focused on 2D game development and proven across multiple shipped game projects. It’s a perfect choice for small indies or large teams.

Tools

Our tools save time. Glue, a core FlatRedBall, tool generates boilerplate so teams can focus on game logic. Plugins to load popular formats like Tiled, Spriter and the Gum UI system make integration easy.

Publishing

FlatRedBall enables native performance with the benefit of code reuse using Xamarin. Our performance tools find problems like memory allocation and render breaks for smooth mobile performance.

About

Built by game developers, for game developers.
Consistent, iterative approach since 2005.

The first version of the FlatRedBall engine was started by Vic Chelaru in 2005 using the Managed DirectX engine. Over time it grew from just an engine to a set of tools always focused on iteratively improving game development speed.

FlatRedBall was rebuilt for XNA and then decoupled when Microsoft withdrew their XNA support. As Xamarin grew, FlatRedBall embraced the cross-platform capabilities and expanded to support mobile game development.

Today, FlatRedBall continues to innovate and iterate. Primary development continues to be driven by Vic on commercial game projects, with support from volunteers and the community.
