With Scratch we can create video games online, from its web platform, and publish them on the same web. I could download its source code and use it, as many others already did (see Scratch modifications). Unfortunately, we need programming knowledge to use it. Actually, Scratch is mainly for teaching kids to code.

I also found editors like Construct 2, GameSalad Creator and many others (just type on Google: create a video game without programming). With those editors we can create video games without coding. Unfortunately they are neither open source nor web platform. They need to be installed on Windows or Mac.

Do you know some editor like Construct 2 or GameSalad Creator but open source and executable from a web server? Maybe some HTML5 game engine can do it?

  • \$\begingroup\$ If you're asking about the Scratch "code" editor, there's a name for it. I believe it may be open-source, as it's used in multiple game makers (eg. Stencyl) \$\endgroup\$ – ashes999 Jun 7 '14 at 3:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ashes999, Stencyl seems easier to use than Scratch, so maybe it could be OK. Unfortunately, it does not seem installable and executable from a server. \$\endgroup\$ – chelder Jun 7 '14 at 15:52

    \$\begingroup\$ You could ask such a question on Software Recommendations (I created a similar one, but for installation on a GNU/Linux desktop: Creating a browser game (2D top-down perspective) without programming skills) \$\endgroup\$ – unor Aug 19 '14 at 12:35
  • \$\begingroup\$ OK @unor. I have requested to migrate it to the site you suggest. Thanks! \$\endgroup\$ – chelder Aug 19 '14 at 17:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ Typically, we don't migrate questions to sites that are still in beta. I suggest re-posting the question there instead of having it migrated. \$\endgroup\$ – MichaelHouse Aug 19 '14 at 18:48
