Keep up to date with GAM3's progress here.

GAM3 is a browser-based game engine developed by tinydark. Initially inspired by Failbetter Games's StoryNexus platform, GAM3 was created to produce a wide range of games that focus on atmosphere, story, and the ability to change the game world through decision-making. Now GAM3 can do more than just create narrative adventures, offering dynamic tile-based maps, loot tables, and D&D-level complexity management.

No Programming Required

A developer does not have to be a programmer in order to make a game. The engine is intended for teams of 1-5 people. We work with each developer to ensure their game is unique and visually distinguishable from other GAM3 games. Source code licensing is available for those who need it.


As an engine, availability is by application only. Because each game may require significant changes in layout and information displayed, it's only feasible to service aspiring developers that are serious and skilled enough to complete a game. Applications are currently closed while GAM3 is getting prepared for external developers.

GAM3's player side is getting a facelift, but here are two older screenshots:

From the player's perspective: playing an event.

GAM3 allows for customization of the UI on a per-player basis.
