Corona holds deep roots in the indie community.
The idea that anyone has the ability to create a great app is Corona Labs’ founding principle. Since 2008, Corona has empowered hundreds of thousands of people, from newbies to mobile veterans, to build and publish high quality content.
We’re proud to have our roots in the global indie community, from the 14-year old developer of Bubble Ball, to the 84-year old wordsmith behind the popular Dabble game. Download your free trial of Corona and get started on your mobile development journey.
Develop 10x faster
Don’t know how to code? No problem. Corona uses a scripting language called Lua – it’s easy to learn and so intuitive that you can turn your creativity into a mobile reality within a matter of weeks or months. Compare that development time to any other platform and you’ll see why Corona is quickly becoming an industry standard.
Corona’s elegant APIs let you add features in just a few lines of code, versus hundreds. Wouldn’t it be great to add physics to your game in just 5 lines of code? With Corona, it is!
Build on industry standards
Corona integrates the same powerful technologies, including OpenGL and OpenAL, that are employed by large studios. The twist – we’ve made these technologies easier to use than ever.
Enjoy access to the Box2D physics engine, Facebook, Game Center, OpenFeint, sprite sheets and many other features and services you need to build great games. Best of all, you can add any of these features in just a few lines of code. Take a look at our tutorials and documentation to see how easy it is.
Don’t have a QA team or dozens of devices at your disposal for testing?
No problem – we’ll do the heavy lifting for you. With Corona, build to iOS, Android, Kindle Fire and NOOK with confidence, and let us deal with fragmentation issues and the craziness of the today’s mobile device landscape.
