Company Summary

PlayCanvas is using the web to reinvent how video games are built, shared and played. It is the world's first end to end game development platform that is hosted completely in the cloud. There is nothing to download and install, and users can work from any connected device. Games can be built rapidly using a multi-user visual editor and then be published live to the web with a couple of mouse clicks.
