Started in 2016 by four friends with the aim of letting anyone make a game, dot big bang has grown into a fully-featured browser-based game making platform, with no install required. Seamless cross-play on all devices means everyone can join in wherever they are, whether competing in 60fps multiplayer, or building and editing collaboratively in real time, with the game still running.
Ideas can be brought to life quickly using a huge library of in-house and community-created objects, scripts and game templates. We have the editor from VSCode built-in with TypeScript that includes autocomplete, debugging, and many quality of life features. Creators retain the rights to their work and have full control over whether their content is remixable, or only used in their own games.
Play and creation will always be free, with plans in motion that will let creators earn money from their work in an equitable and transparent marketplace. Our business model is to let creators sell cosmetic items to players and sell objects, scripts, templates etc. to other creators. We’re not interested in crypto or NFTs.
dot big bang is also free for teachers, with an education programme in development, complete with lesson plans for classes at various levels. See http://dotbigbang.com/education.
Try it out at http://dotbigbang.com/game (requires sign up) or play games on http://dotbigbang.com (no signup needed). Quick start information and detailed documentation can be found in our developer API here. Feel free to talk to the devs on Discord with any questions you may have, and follow us on social media to stay up to date with new features and developments.
