Defold and Play.Defold

The product page and play space for a game development platform.

Defold is a free game development platform created by King (the guys behind Candy Crush). Our task was to create their main website, where one could learn about, download and access the documentation from the game engine (including the whole branding and UX of it).  We were also tasked to create a second platform, Play.Defold, where the developers could share their games under development for playtest (similarly to Greenlight from Steam).

Defold’s target group are indie developers, so the project was kickstarted with user and – a lot of – desktop research, and moved on with a very iterative processing in close relationship with the client and the developers/creators of the tool.
