Armory is an open source 3D game engine with full Blender integration that makes it a complete game development tool for example to create a 3D configurator. The result is a unified workflow from start to finish that lets you work faster. You no longer have to switch between different applications to constantly export data from one application to another.

Armory is based on open source technology. Using Kha-Multimedia-Framework and Haxe, Armory is a cross-platform toolkit to deliver best-in-class performance and portability.

Introduction Armory

The Armory Renderer.

Considerable efforts have been made to improve the rendering system. A render path is fully scriptable with immediate support for delayed and forward paths. To define materials, Armory is based on the so-called Node Cycles. The materials are precompiled to shaders suitable for real-time rendering.

  • Physically based
  • Cycles of Material Nodes
  • Voxel-based global illumination
  • Temporal Anti-Aliasing
  • Tessellated Displacement
  • Screen space Remarching
  • HDR pipeline


Armory is aimed at Nodes. For materials, a subset of Standard Cycles Nodes is used. Each scene created in Armory can be rendered in cycles using Path Tracing. This makes it possible to use cycles for easy baking without separate setup. Performance has the highest priority. To define the game behavior, a system of Logic Nodes is developed.

Game Engine.

Everything is bundled to provide the ultimate game development tool. As a starting point you can choose one of the available templates for game prototypes. The code editor with debugging support is integrated. Use for logic nodes, write scripts in Haxe or embed WebAssembly code.

  • Rendering
  • Physik
  • Audio
  • Navigation
  • Skripting
  • Vernetzung


Create live scenes and export them to desktop, web, mobile and consoles for everyone to experience. Binary data format, asset compression, and efficient build tools are designed to avoid bloated package types.


A robust animation system is used that supports GPU skinning, action blending and events. In addition, each node on the Timeline can be animated using keyframes as you are used to.

  • GPU Dual-Quaternion Skinning
  • Instanced rendering of skinned meshes
  • Timeline based animation
