Extensions

GDevelop is built in a flexible way. In addition to core features, new capabilities are provided by extensions. Extensions can contain objects, behaviors, actions, conditions, expressions or events.

Directly from GDevelop, you have access to a collection of community created extensions, listed here. You can also create, directly in your project, new behaviors, actions, conditions or expressions for your game.
