Platform Dashboard

Entity-Centric Design

At the core of our engine, every object in your game world is an 'entity'. The behavior of each entity is determined by its type and scripted in a repository we provide, ensuring both flexibility and control in game design.

scalable game worlds

Our innovative chunk system divides your game world into manageable sections. Each chunk, with fixed width and depth, can be independently simulated on multiple servers. This allows your game to support an unprecedented number of players, far exceeding traditional multiplayer games.

Efficient Resource Management

Chunks are dynamically loaded or unloaded, optimizing computational resources. Loaded chunks are actively simulated, while unloaded chunks save their state without using resources.

Comprehensive Control + Debugging

Customize entity behavior through scripts in a secure, containerized server environment. You can start, stop, and update your game through a user-friendly control panel, with detailed documentation and support for debugging.

Rich Server-Side API + Love2D SDK Support

Dive into our detailed server-side API documentation and utilize our Love2D SDK for building immersive game clients. We're also expanding support to include SDKs for Godot and Unity.

Real-Time Synchronization + Event Handling

Stay updated with real-time synchronization of entities and event transmission between server and client, providing a seamless gaming experience.
