A modern 2D level editor

with a strong focus on user-friendliness


LDtk (Level Designer Toolkit) is a free 2D level editor based on my personal experience creating Dead Cells and making game jams.

My goal is to provide a modern level editor that has all the important core features, and to do them right, with a modern user interface/experience.

  • Easy to use
  • Auto-rendering: define some simple rules in a visual editor and let LDtk do the boring part of the skinning job for you.
  • Custom entities: create your own game entities, with any custom (typed) properties, like “hit points”, a patrol path or an inventory of items.
  • Aseprite support
  • Super Simple Export: for every new tool out there, there is this moment when you need to write the importer for your fav engine. I’ve been there too: so LDtk offers a Super Simple Export option. And by “simple”, I mean it.
