Looks like an interesting beginners game programming engine.
A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Amazing built-in live cooperation
CraftStudio lets you craft games from scratch in real-time over the Internet. Come jam with your team or join others to make your dream games come true!
Now free for all to use, enjoy and thanks for the support throughout the years! No new updates are planned. You can pay what you want to support me if you like it.
Don't waste time with technical issues
CraftStudio has all the tools you need built right in, including modeling, painting and animating. No format compatibility issues, no lengthy conversion process, no synchronization issues.
It all works out of the box!
Building blocks all the way down!
CraftStudio was built to be extremely easy to use no matter where you're coming from. From models to maps to scripting, it's all just blocks!
Visual scripting lets you make your own game rules without any technical knowledge. And if you need the extra control, good old text-based Lua scripting is available too!
Great education tool for all ages
CraftStudio is used in schools as a rapid prototyping tool, to engage kids in creative ways and to teach students to think in 3D space
What the press says...
"A genuinely cute, well made game-making tool"
Craig Pearson — Rock Paper Shotgun
"Pretty damn neat [...] Good things usually happen when you give PC gamers new tools to express their creativity, so keep an eye on this one."
Tyler Wilde — PC Gamer

This game making tool has some amazing ideas contained in it. Why did this die?
Maybe so they could work on Superpowers.
They went to work on Hypixel's upcoming game Hytale.
"Back in 2011, I started working on software called CraftStudio" says Élisée Maurer, who leads development of Hytale Model Maker alongside Nicolas 'Bilou' Gauthier. "The idea was to try to democratize game making by providing really simple tools for players to make their own games - and also make it fun, make it like a game, by providing real-time collaboration."
"That's how I met Bilou" Élisée continues. "He was one of the first people to buy CraftStudio and play with it. Then we did a bunch of game jams together and at some point I figured that maybe we could do something that's a bit more modular, that could go further - and if it worked on the web, that would be awesome."
As Élisée and Bilou began work on this new project, they became aware that the Hytale team were using CraftStudio's modeling tool. "They had started working with just CraftStudio's model editor because it had such a unique visual style and matched what they wanted to do" Élisée says. "But they were limited by what the software could do."
The solution was to bring Élisée and Bilou into the team - and build new software to assist with the development of Hytale. It has now become the toolkit we use to create all of the items, creatures, and animations that you see in-game - and when Hytale launches, you'll be able to use it to create your own.
Hey is a craftstudio account free
I've forgotten my password, how can I get a new one?
You can just create a new account, accounts don't hold any data anymore.
Does anyone know how to add a skybox to it?
My animation won't play
anyone that can help
Hello all, I was wondering, can we make hypixel mods directly from this software?
if so, how do we put the program and mod into a live server or game?
I am aiming to make a game mod for hypixel. The mod will contain a security package used for in-game security to the players builds. I am experienced with programming and animation but don't know how to upload work to a server or game:(
Also, looking for a partner with the mod because it's going to be a lot of work.
Heres an overview of what the mod will have...
camera's with monitors to display live and recorded footage.
robber npc's whom will rob local settlements.
vehicles such as trucks and motorcycles.
German shepherd like looking dog for security.
spotlights and revolving gates to make secure buildings.
Although there are so many things, Im not putting it all cause I'm tired of writing:)
Anyway, please help me with the questions above and anybody wanting to join my in this project my email is David.email@example.com.
thanks, all help and support is appreciated!!!
What are you even talking about? Hypixel is a minecraft server and has no relation to craftstudio
My computer is really bad, and I don't know if I can use this game engine, because I tryed to launch the engine and it just have not entered, so I just want to know the especifications that the computer have to have to use this, can you answer me?
how to open projects
Someone want to learn how to make games in CraftStudio ???
¿Alguien quiere aprender a como hacer juegos en Craftstudio??
I do. I can model and make a map and animate and build scenes, but can't code. I am working on a new game called Tanks n Planes, a game where you can either command a tank or fly a plane in a 32 vs 32 Battle kinda like WoT, but with simple graphics so anyone can play, and using generic models and vehicles.
Yeah sure!Do u have a discord so we can talk in?
What's your server on CraftStudio ???
Hey EzeMakesGames do you think you could help me?
/ Someone i could ask for help
I have discord
You can add me on CraftStudio
my username is: remliv
I still use this software everyday. It seems that my login still works fine but new users do not work anymore. So I am very happy that it works for me.
I also have a fully updated build of the latest version and for new users are still updates required which are not possible anymore.
I heared the creator now works for Hypixel Studios the creators of Hytale but it would be great if this tool can become open source under a MIT or similar license which would allow other software developers like me to make a new overhaul for this software and get it back available to the public.
So I hope Sparklin Labs would consider open sourcing this like they did with Superpowers. As there is so many people still wanting to use this.
I enter the correct information and it says i cant access the master server
In the trailer YouTube video thingy it said u could use it offline, but every time i want to make a Project it says "Connect"
i used to use this, it is not offline. But on the upside, when i used it.. i had to pay for the software.
I hope you did some research and realized the people who made this are working on hytale and are literally making the mod tools.
is this ever going to be open sourced?
You can already access the source on Bitbucket.
Hola les quiero preguntar como le ago para creear personajes y como ago que me funcione el juego en general?
Hola,perdon,se que es medio tarde para contestarte pero... ¿Necesitas aprender sobre como funciona CraftStudio ?Yo puedo enseñarte
can this engine support character customization (like either uploading a custom skin or even doing a full skyrim style customization)?
I forgot my password for Craftstudio, how do I get it back?
If you use chrome go to configuration>advance config>managa passwords and just click the eye to see the password of the site you want, I hope that helps :)
So, you buy this app, it says it's super easy and fun, you open it up. It wont let you make a STARTER PLACE AT ALL. Waste of money and time, I hate this app.
LOL You don't have to pay XD There 's a button: "Take me to the download" LMAO
You didnt pay you donated if you analyzed the payment page you can click on the "take me to the download" text
I bought the program and now you have turned off the servers! I want my money back!
You didn't pay you donated if you payed attention to the page there was text saying "take me to the download" and then you could've clicked on that...
why i cant run it :(
Still alive ? According to comments and broken links, it's not. Any fork somewhere you know about ?
Im cant login
Please consider releasing CraftStudio to the open source community. It was a great tool and it is a shame it has been abandoned. I personally would love to use it, not only for my own work, but to give my students the capability to make 3d games without having to learn a programming language or complicated software.
Hi there! Your game is stuck in a loop where it is installing but never left any local files for me to delete so it knows to try again. How do I refresh my install of your game since it seems to be broken?
Wont let me log in despite checking my username and password - says they arent recognised!
i need hamachi to play with my friend?
this must be, by far one of the most unstable tools i have ever played
Can't even get a good connection with a friend without it constantly giving the same ''No connection to remote host'' error
Seriously, do not download this unstable piece of shite
It sure is difficult to get fonts working, as there is no easy way to get a font. Were fonts just added, because it took me hours to figure it out.
