Contributing to GDevelop

GDevelop is an “open-source” project, which means that anyone can contribute to improve the software. Here are the multiple ways that you can contribute to GDevelop without paying a subscription:

Translating GDevelop to other languages

GDevelop’ website and Game Engine are currently translated by our community.
These translations are made via Crowdin, where everyone can translate GDevelop’s written content to their native language.
To start contributing, you have to create a Crowdin account for free.

Creating and reviewing Game Extensions

GDevelop has a list of powerful extensions which allow creators to take their game creation further. To contribute to upcoming and future extensions, here’s what you can do:

Resolving community’s questions

The forum and the Discord chat are the places where users go to get answers to niche questions. You can provide help in any of the two based on your platform preferences (please keep in mind that you have to be at least 13 years old to join our Discord server).

Writing articles for our Wiki

Our documentation is also managed and enriched by fellow members of the community. The wiki is, and should stay the reliable source of truth for GDevelop’s users: it is searchable, and quick to contribute.
Today, there are two ways that you can help maintain the wiki updated:

  • Taking inspiration from any of the forum topics on the “How do I” section marked as solved, and write its article on the wiki (after you’re done, please post a message on the forum topic so it can be archived)
  • Writing a Wiki article if you notice that there’s missing information about a theme or feature of GDevelop

To do so, create an account on the wiki, and go to the page or the section that has to be updated. You can do so by clicking on the pencil on the vertical dark purple section, or by clicking on the “EDIT” blue button inside the content to edit a section.

GDevelop' Wiki

Before you start please, read the guide on how to write for Wikis and technical Documentation.

Debugging GDevelop’s app

If you’re good with code, you can also contribute to GDevelop’s App: You can find Our game engine source code on GitHub, and GDevelop’s Design System on Storybook.
To contribute to open GitHub issues you can:

  • Look at the list of open general issues on Github here
  • Report known bugs here

Contributing to the Asset Store

GDevelop has an integrated asset store where users can search, install or even purchase assets directly on the app.
If you are a 2D animator, background designer, sound designer or typography designer and you’d like to upload ready-made assets for our creators, you can submit your art through Github by following this link.
If you want to sell your art on the Asset Store, please send an email to [email protected] and make a quick introduction with who you are, where you live and your portfolio.
