What is the Delta Engine?

The Delta Engine is an open source application engine and free to use on PC. It allows to write 2D and 3D applications or games very quickly and easily with Visual Studio in .NET and our Editor. Via our cloud services the Delta Engine can convert between C#, C++, Objective-C, Java and JavaScript to bring your apps to other platforms (Android, iOS, WP, W8, HTML5).

Clean Code, Tutorials, 100% Code Coverage and our cloud approach allows easy coding, sharing and collaboration. Why not try it out yourself in the browser or download the full thing and give it a try. Version 1.0 is released when all features and major platforms are done and we have finished one project with it. The community edition of the Delta Engine is currently not updated (last release was in 2014), we are working on a game project and will return to it in the future when we have the funds to continue development. If you like us to work on a mobile project (game or app) or for general interest in the engine, contact us.


Latest game using the Delta Engine: Heroes of SoulCraft

Showcase games

Several full fetched games have been developed with the Delta Engine. SoulCraft, SoulCraft 2, Heroes of Soulcraft (12+ million downloads on Android, iPhone, iPad, Amazon, Ouya, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8) and Arena Wars (PC) are some examples. We are currently (2016) supporting the SoulCraft games full time and make sure they work great on all platforms, sorry for not having time or funds to support the community edition of Delta Engine. You can also find smaller titles in our Starter Kits games list. In addition some business apps also have been developed recently, drop us an email if you are interested.

Supports many platforms

The Delta Engine supports many platforms like Windows, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows Phone, iOSAndroid, Android Tablets,Android TVsWebMac OS and Linux. We also work with about 10 different Graphic Frameworks and support integration into other engines as well (e.g. Unity3D).

Our current focus is to make creation of apps and games as easy as possible in Windows within Visual Studio (our Editor works inside Visual Studio and continuously runs together with your unit tests) and targeting all PC platforms (all Windows versions, Linux Ubuntu and MacOS X) plus Web and Android. The other platforms are working in older versions as well, but are currently not in our nightly builds.
