Free MMORPG editor
I hope you’re having an awesome day. I’m excited to tell you about a really cool game making platform we’ve been pouring the last year into. It’s called Gameleon! (gameleon.co)
It’s a cloud based game editor and publishing platform that we’d really like to get some feedback on.
Why is it so exciting? Well, let’s put it like this. Have you ever wanted to create your own game, and publish it online for thousands of people to play? Well, you can’t really do that without some programming experience, technical know how, dedicated hardware and much more.
You’ll probably want to know straight away what kind of games you can make with Gameleon, and to keep the answer short, you can make 2D and isometric MMORPG’s and similar games ( single player RPG’s, hack and slash games, point and click adventures and so on). In fact, to showcase this exact point we’ve taken an iconic RPG - Diablo 2 - and re-created its first few levels.
It tooks us two days to extract models and textures from the original Diablo and import them into our editor.
We designed it with user-friendliness in mind, and specifically tailored it to people who are non-technical in such a way that it doesn’t require any knowledge of programming languages, animation, etc. It’s very intuitive and 100% visual: everything is done with a drag and drop interface, and the scripting and AI behaviors and such are all pretty easy.
The finished editor will also have an Asset Market, where you can upload assets made for your games and auction them to others (or give them away for free). This means that not only game creators will want to use Gameleon, but also artists and programmers, sound designers and recorders, who will be able to get a buck out of helping people with bits and pieces to make their own games.
We’ve entered open beta recently and have opened up the beta version editor to the world. We’d really like to get your feedback on this.
We’ve made a quick tutorial video to showcase the creation process using a quick, basic 2D map.
You can access the live editor and watch the tutorial on our website gameleon.co
In the left hand side of the interface there are resources and links to get you started: you’ll find maps and skins to start making maps for the beta, as well as links to the community and to the contact form, videos and more. We’ve tried to make it so that you have an easy time getting started.
If you like what you’ve read so far, please, gives us a hand and test out the editor! We’re excited to get your feedback and suggestions.

We've talked a lot about Gameleon, we've encouraged you to check it out and tell us your opinions,but now it is time for you to play with it!
Gameleon is now live!
The platform already comes with assets and themes built in, so you can start playing with the Editor and creating content right away, exploring it’s built-in content and creating new ones with ease.
We've also implemented a new system: each action in Gameleon is rewarded with points that unlock new and exciting content to make games with.
We’re proud to have received quite a bit of recognition for the innovative ideas behind its power and simplicity, such as the “Innovation in Internet, Mobile and Software Computing Prize” at the Intel Global Challenge 2013 in Berkeley (as well as Best Pitch) or the IXIA Innovation Award in 2012. We’re also proud of our partnerships with Mozilla (through their WebFWD program) and Microsoft’s BizSpark Plus, who have helped us in our efforts to create a better game-making experience.
