What is Stencyl?

Stencyl isn't your average game creation software; it's a gorgeous, intuitive toolset that'll have you making Flash games in a flash, for free. Building games becomes as simple as snapping together blocks, building Actors and constructing worlds as you see fit. As a game's director, you're in full control.

Once your game is ready for prime time, we let you decide how to publish it. Share your game on Stencyl.com with a single click. Embed it inside your own site or blog. Or just export a SWF and upload it right here on Kongregate.

StencylWorks gives you access to StencylForge, a marketplace for game resources. Choose from hundreds of royalty-free resources to use in your game. If you feel like giving back, help spread the fun by sharing your own creations, too.
