Game Design, Not Guesswork

Prototype without coding to ensure the coherence of game systems, speed up iterations and enable clarity when communicating ideas

Your vision in motion before code


Trusted by Studios around the World

Instant clarity

Turn back-of-the-napkin sketches into playable diagrams and grasp relationships between game systems instantly. This transparency ensures that everyone involved in the design process can easily understand the mechanics and dependencies, eliminating the need for lengthy documents or pitch decks.


Independent prototyping

Transform your designs into data with 1 click. Gain valuable insights into player behaviour, balance issues, and potential optimisations. Accelerate the iteration process with the ability to prototype systems, test and change parameters in place, without the need for coding or deployed builds.

Empowered craftsmanship

Strengthen your craft with a tool created for effective player-centric game design workflows. Avoid the daily struggle of switching not-quite-right tools at every design step. Own your process and leverage predictions to make informed decisions that ensure a great player experience.


Sarah Brodsky, PhD, Game economy designer:

“My favourite thing about Machinations is the visual representation. For me it was really like, yes, this is what I need to do my work. It saves me a lot of time, a lot of energy and a lot of stress.”
