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:

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 documentation

Our documentation is also managed and enriched by fellow members of the community. The documentation 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 documentation updated:

  • In order to add new information to the documentation, a PR is needed on GitHub. Please visit this repostiory for more information.
