The Game Studio

Xenko comes with a robust toolchain that enables users to intuitively and efficiently create, manage and modify all assets of your game.

We carefully analyzed typical game development workflows and devised a fully integrated suite of editors to simplify and automate tedious editing work for developers. Our nested prefab and archetype systems scale along all editors and assets and provides you with an outstanding editing experience.

Xenko Game Studio has also been designed so that it can be extended easily. A plug-in system to help users extend the Game Studio is coming soon!

Scene Editor

Create your game scenes and levels from the editor by simply drag-and-dropping your objects from the asset view to the desired places.

Nested Prefabs

Our nested prefab system automates the tedious work of editing many assets. Edit a single reference object and all changes will replicate everywhere.

UI Editor

Build the UI of your game visually and intuitively. Create UI libraries and leverage the prefab system to automatically update all your UI elements' design.

Asset Management

Asset Management

Create assets by simply drag-and-dropping models, textures and other resources inside the editor. Easily organize, edit and preview them.

Sprite Editor

Visually create and adjust your sprites from the editor. Organize them into separate sheets and Xenko will automatically create optimized atlases for you.

Curve Editor

Intuitively animate the value of your properties by creating animation curves directly in the editor.

Graphics: 2D, 3D & VR

With Xenko, no need to be a rendering expert anymore to make great looking games! The engine does most of the hard work for you so you can focus on the really important tasks.

Xenko's PBR materials combined with post-effects, multi-threading, and next-generation graphics APIs support will deliver the most realistic look to your games at the best performance.

You will also appreciate our flexible rendering pipeline, accessible low level APIs and fully customizable shaders to partially or completely personalize the rendering of your game.
