Create, Publish, Earn
Whether you’re a seasoned game development professional or just starting out, Core offers one of the easiest ways to build, publish, and monetize multiplayer games and worlds.
The Core editor comes with THOUSANDS of built-in 3D shapes, props, and materials to use as a basis for creating new models. All original models for games are made using this content, which is downloaded with the Core Launcher itself, so games and projects can be loaded almost instantaneously.
Core offers polished game starter templates including Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Battle Royale, Dungeon Crawler, Racing, and more. Game frameworks allow Creators to launch into the game development process much faster in those games.

"I made roughly 9 times more from Core in April of 2021 than I did from Roblox, with 30% fewer play sessions. The audience on Core is also a bit older so they generally have more disposable income and monetize a lot better than Roblox players."
"With the revenue I earned from Core so far, I have been able to quit my day job and pursue my dream of becoming a full time game developer. I have been able to support my parents, pay my rent as well as keep up with my day to day expenses!"
Joel (Deadmau5) Zimmerman

"It took about a week to flesh out the design from an early concept to a polished level!"
Frequently Asked Questions
Will Core be available on other platforms?
Yes, Core users will be able to play Core games on multiple platforms in the future. Core is PC-only for now but will come out on multiple platforms like mobile devices and consoles.
Am I able to import assets made in other engines?
For making custom models, Core includes a vast array of meshes, materials, and primitive objects that you can combine and rework into very complex creations through 'kitbashing'-- a methodology which has historically been compared to the experience of building cool creations out of "Lego's" from basic parts. Everything you see in Core was made solely out of our asset building blocks!
Who creates and owns games on Core?
While Manticore Games is the developer and operator of Core as a game editor and platform, our awesome Creator community makes the games people play on Core. On Core, you retain your existing intellectual property rights to games that you publish, and can monetize them if you wish. Basically, this means that you, not Core, have rights over your game ideas and can take that idea wherever you wish..
Why should I make games on Core instead of Roblox?
You can make games for one or the other, or both! Core Creators have seen much higher monetization from their Core games compared to other platforms due to the higher 50% revenue share and increased purchasing power of Core players.
