Haxe for Game Development

Write high performance games for every major platform using world-class libraries.

Haxe has a wealth of game frameworks and libraries available to help you create your masterpiece.

Being able to achieve native speeds across multiple platforms with a single code base gives Haxe developers an edge.

What I love about Haxe is how it lets me get a game up and running quickly, yet it's still fast and robust enough to work well all the way through the process.

Being flexible with platforms is also key, I ended up porting to ones I had no idea about when I started my project. I couldn't have done this without support for such a wide array of platforms.
