A minimalistic Flutter game engine.
Our goal is to release v1 soon. We are periodically launching RCs (release candidates) as we evolve the code, and we are already quite happy with where we are (but there might still be further changes).
Please use this version to get a preview of the new Flame version and also to give the team feedback about the new structure and/or features.
main branch is the bleeding edge of the v1 migration. The
master-v0.x branch is the latest v0 release (where we are still merging some patches and crucial fixes).
Note that the documentation in the main branch of this repo is newer than the latest released version.
Here you can find the documentation for different versions:
- Latest stable version: Flame-engine website
- Latest stable version: GitHub docs
- Latest v1.0.0 version: GitHub docs
The complete documentation can be found here.
The official site for Flame, which also contains the documentation can be found here.
We have a Flame help channel on Blue Fire's Discord, join it here.
We also have a FAQ, so please search for your question there first.
The goal of this project is to provide a complete set of out-of-the-way solutions for the common problems every game developed in Flutter will share.
Currently it provides you with:
- a game loop
- a component/object system
- a physics engine (Forge2D, available through flame_forge2d)
- audio support
- effects and particles
- gesture and input support
- images, sprites and sprite sheets
- basic Rive support
- and a few other utilities to make development easier
You can use whichever ones you want, as they are all somewhat independent.
