Almost 25 years of supporting users and game dev teams to get their products out
Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure to personally assist users develop and publish their projects, especially when they wanted to distribute them, whether commercially or not. And we very much intend on keeping this up going forward with Open Dev kit as well!
Personal touch not offered by most other game engines and software tools
We’ve always had a focus on making game/app development accessible and easy, and we’re aiming to maintain that standard we’ve set by our previous project 001 Game Creator. We don’t want you to have to live inside a reference manual to use our products!
We prioritize our community’s feedback, actively engage with their suggestions, and maintain an open channel for their feature requests. Together, we’ve been building toolkits that evolves with the needs and creativity of our creative community.
No more side-loading apps, third party installers and incessant registrations! With a simple check of a box, dive into projects using your compatible OpenXR/OpenVR devices like the Valve Index, Meta Quest 2, HTC Vive and plenty of others.

Easy-to-use scripting node system for non-programmers
Simplify creation and unlock the power of coding without the complexity. Our intuitive drag-and-drop graphical scripting system used by millions around the world make native code creation accessible to everyone, without needing extensive and complicated reference manuals. This makes it possible for someone of literally any age to start creating games and apps by piecing a flowchart together just like this:
Leverage the collaboration features and streamline your development process. Easily share projects with other users, breaking free from the limitations of traditional .zip file archive sharing. With just a few clicks any other Open Dev Kit user can be editing your project!
Thanks to Open Dev Kit’s infrastructure being cloud-based, access to your projects can be granted from anywhere, anytime! Whether you’re working from your home computer or on the go, you can develop and even compile.
ODK was built using itself (like the movie Inception)
We built all the functionality of Open Dev Kit using itself, meaning those who are extra savvy can go in and modify the behaviour we have coded in! Although this won’t apply to most users, those who love to tinker might find a world of excitement waiting for them!
