Download Version 1.30

Manage resources easily​

Simply import your beautiful textures, tile-sheets and animations into the editor and get them ready to build beautiful games.

The same goes for audio, fonts and custom functions.

Enjoy development using our new data system.

Make data oriented objects, scenes and more. We make custom scene design as seamless as possible in the Game Pencil Editor.

Make Cross-platform games with ease!​

Game Pencil was developed in-house by PawByte to ensure we have full control of bringing our games to as many consoles and desktop environments as possible. Currently supported platforms include:

  • Windows
  • OSX
  • Linux
  • HTML5

With planned support for PS4 , Switch, and Xbox One in 2020.

Healthy Update Cycle​

We hate having to wait for updates for our favorite software and games, so release monthly and sometimes more often updates to the IDE and run-times.

Engine development can not continue without your suport.

Just one peak at the GitHub source code will show this is a huge project. Please consider donating to our patreon campaign to help fund future updates to the game engine. Every donation counts and helps the engine alot moving forward.

If you donate, not only will you help with the overhead costs of making Game Pencil, you will help us reach new platforms.

Open Source then, now and forever!​

We believe open source technologies should be as easy to use as possible. 

We believe open source software should do it’s best to be open source.

Long gone are the days for open source libraries to only be on windows. If it’s made in C/C++ it needs to have code that is compliant for all platforms.

We also hate licenses that force code-modifications to be made public. If we put our code into the world freely, we do not care if they do not return that same initiative. So in other words, we hate GPL and renounce it vehemently. 

To the best of our abilities we have applied these principals to the Game Pencil Engine and any of our other open source products.

Your feedback, issues and testing helps make this engine stronger each day.

Do not hesitate on making a request for a new feature. We plan on using this engine for all of our games.

We want to make sure those games run as nice as possible and are as easy to make as possible too.
