Craftyy: an online tool geared towards collaborative game designDamien Djaouti | 09-16-2012 | 16:44

Craftyy is a tool designed to ease the creation of videogames without requiring any kind of technical skills. Paired with an online sharing platform, it's designed to foster collaborative game design. Any game created with it is place under a Creative Commons licence (BY-NC). Hence, anyone can pick any of the game hosted on the platform, and easily create its own "remix", then share it again to the plaform.



Still under construction, Craftyy needs you to continue. If you are interested in the project, do not hesitate to show support to the developers through their Kickstarter campaign. You can also try the beta version, to see how great it is!


If it's not the first tooldesigned around the idea of collaborative game design (we can for example think about The Sims Carnival, Sharendipity, Craftstudio and GameBrix), most of these tools are now dead because they were lacking a solid economical model. The only exception is CraftStudio, who also relied on Kickstarter. But, after all, isn't it logical that collaborative funding can help collaborative game design tools to live?
