YAHAHA - making 3D game creation easy

YAHAHA is on a mission to democratise 3D content creation, helping creatives of all skill levels to make their own games, worlds, and social spaces. Whether you're new to game development or a seasoned Pro, YAHAHA makes it easy to create games and simple to share.

Making games should be fun and easy, especially during game jams. It can be challenging to learn complex game engines in a short period of time, and furthermore, it can be hard to find visually appealing assets to match your creative ideas.

Yahaha takes the complexity out and allows you to focus on things that matter! Our all-in-one game-developing platform is packed with features, such as:

  • A fully-fledged intuitive game editor
  • Millions of ready-to-use free 3D assets for games. Drag and drop ready!
  • Easy to add gameplay systems from quests and dialogues to boss mechanics and much more
  • Out of the box, easy multiplayer support
  • Custom import functionality, allowing to bring 3D creations into the games
  • Solo and beginner friendly

Yahaha offers many out-of-the-box features, allowing you to focus on designing games and not get distracted by technical challenges. Artists and storytellers often have amazing ideas and want to create something out of them. Yahaha makes it easy for them, they don’t have to worry about how everything works, they can just click and drag everything into place.

For your vision to come true, a big part of the game creation process is finding and choosing suitable 3D models that work for your game. This is why we have partnered up with many top asset providers, such as Synty Studios, CGTrader and Dabeeo to bring you the best high-quality assets available.

With our library, you can just do a quick search and be served with an endless-looking list of possible matches. Our asset library provides you with characters, buildings, music, skyboxes and much more.  It doesn’t matter if you’re more experienced in game creation or just starting out, the asset library will benefit you regardless. It is especially handy for those who are working alone or those who don’t necessarily have the skills or the time to make their own assets. That being said, if you have your own model you would like to use in your game, you can upload it to YAHAHA!

While we always focus on making game creation easy, we always strive to provide different ways to create your game, giving you complete control of what is possible. For advanced users that want to go deeper and create more complex logic, we also offer Lua scripting and node graph integration; for more information, check out the docs.

Yahaha is giving creators the freedom to create and distribute their content to allow users to spend time with friends in new and exciting worlds created by fellow players. Yahaha provides integrated multiplayer by default from the start of your creation so you can have all the fun experiences shared together! If you build it, you can play it and share it! But don't take just our word; check out the latest blog, "YAHAHA and the Amazing Maze", written by David Mullich, a world-class video game veteran and what steps he took to create a maze game!

This year, we are super excited and pleased to be official sponsors of GGJ. With no barriers to entry and powerful functionality, Yahaha is the perfect 3D development environment for participants to turn their ideas into reality.
