Playcraft is a multiplayer free-to-play game creation sandbox coming to PC, in development since 2016. I now need your support to finish it!
Playcraft makes game creation accessible, so players can have fun making their own games without worrying about the technical side of things. From physics-based playgrounds, to coop adventure games, the limit is your imagination!
- Make online games without coding
- Switch from creating to play-testing with a press of a button
- Create awesome first or third person games like action-adventure, puzzle, platformers, shooters or walking-simulators
- Paint colors and more!
- Dialogues and non player characters
- Create and play with either the Playcraft community, your friends or solo
- Publish and discover games on the Steam workshop
A typical day in Playcraft:
Animating any object is fast and easy.
Linking a trigger to activate an other object.
Building a wall: easy!
Using the first person view.
Breakthrough in video games often comes from communities of passionate gamers and modders. I grew up playing mods on games like Warcraft and Counter Strike. To experience so much creativity is amazing : Counter strike, MOBA and Battle Royale are all born from this modding community: Mods push video games forward.
That said, while developing and modding games is awesome, we all know there's a barrier for entry due to the complexity and technical knowledge required. With Playcraft I want to speed up the process and remove these technical barriers, making the joy of modding accessible for everyone and bound only by their creativity.
It’s so exciting to see people have fun with Playcraft! The feedback and support I get from the game's growing community means everything.
Making something unique is the greatest feeling, and with Playcraft you can share this experience with your friends and the world!
A Free-to-Play Model
Free-to-Play means you'll be able to invite any friends or family to play or create with you, without any financial pressure: It will help growing the community.
The model is based on cosmetic-only items like hats, contains no timers or pay to win elements. The Pro Pack, included in all the tiers, unlocks all the extra features of Playcraft, including all future updates.
The Pro Pack contains all the Creation mode's extra features, such as the ability to increase your fly speed, unlock character customization options like glowing effects, plus an exclusive hat!

Hi! I’m Adrien Quay-Thevenon. I originally hail from France but I've been living in Montreal, Canada for the past seven years. More than anything else I love to play and create video games, particularly multiplayer games that let players express their creativity.
I've been a game designer and programmer at indie studios including illogika and Spearhead Games for over eight years. However, I quit my last job in early 2017 to work full time on Playcraft.
I think creativity is one of the most important skills we can develop.
Thank You !
Thank you so much for checking out Playcraft. I can’t wait to discover your awesome creations!
The community is the most important part of Playcraft, so please help me expand it by sharing this campaign. I'll continue to listen to community feedback and build the game we all want to play.
Any extra funds will be redirected into development such as new characters, items and features. I plan to expand, optimize and support the game looooong after release.
Risks and challenges
I started developing Playcraft full time early 2017, and most of the core is already there.
What's left now is mainly bug fixes, as well as working on the player progression / tutorials.
While Playcraft is a multiplayer online experience, you have the possibility to host your own servers, as well as playing offline : It will never shut down.
The main challenge for Playcraft is to grow an active community.
- All gone!
