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 (current plan is Q3 2015).

The next version will be released in Q3 2015, only early 2014 build available right now.


Latest game using the Delta Engine: SoulCraft 2

Showcase games

Several full fetched games have been developed with the Delta Engine. SoulCraft, SoulCraft 2, Heroes of Soulcraft (Android, iPhone, iPad, Amazon, Ouya, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8) and Arena Wars (PC) are some examples. An earlier version of the engine has been used in big open source game projects as well: Rocket Commander and XNA Racing Game. 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.
