Efficiency is the name of the game, and this is why Castagne aims to deliver an environment where you can create quickly and effectively! Make informed changes, while keeping sure you're not breaking anything! Work in teams or solo!

Check out the list of features!

Free & Open Source

Castagne is built on top of Godot Engine, and is under the MPL 2.0 licence. Your games will belong to you, and you alone, with no royalties! You can also use all of the Godot ecosystem for your game!

Solodev or Team?

There's tools for all groups! As a solo developer, the editor tools let you test a lot quickly, even if you are not the greatest at execution (I sure am not). As a team, divide up the work efficiently using custom editors: only show the relevant variables to the designer, and let the programmer manage the logic!

Programmer or not?

Are you a programmer? Great! Castagne is made with flexibility in mind, and you can create new modules or instance it easily, enabling you to push it to the limit! Not a programmer? That's cool too! Use some of the genre tools and standard custom editors to make attacks efficiently!

Artist or not?

Are you an artist? Marvellous! There's quite a few ways to import your work in Castagne, both 2D and 3D. Are you a disaster with a brush? That's not a problem! Use some of the Base Castagne Characters, either directly or as a base, and create your own movesets from there!


Come on and talk with some other developers and enthusiasts on Discord! Ask for help, give feedback, and get to know other fighting game fans! Maybe you'll even find your next partners there?
