2D animation for games

Bring video games alive

Bring video games alive

Animation brings video games alive. We believe creating great 2D animation requires not only powerful software, but a powerful workflow. Spine is dedicated to 2D skeletal animation, providing an efficient workflow both for creating amazing animation and for integrating it into your games.


Live Demos

Our live demos show a sample of what is possible with Spine, right in your browser window. Play animations in layers, manipulate skeletons dynamically, and much more.

Animating is an iterative process. Spine provides numerous tools to shape and refine your 2D animations. Bend and deform images with mesh skinning/weights, adjust timing with the dopesheet, visualize motion with ghosting, pose your characters with inverse kinematics, create pseudo 3D effects, and much more.
