Open Source Cross-Platform Game Programming

Welcome to Crayon, a free, open-source, beginner-oriented programming language for creating 2D games.

You can export Crayon projects to run on a variety of platforms including:

  • iOS
  • The Web (exports to plain JavaScript, so no browser plugin necessary)
  • Windows
  • OSX
  • Chrome OS

Android support is currently in the works.

Crayon is a standalone programming language, not a game maker or game engine. It is open source (under the MIT license) and will always be free to use.
