Change Any Game

Just like Instagram, use filters to change the appearance of games.
Like photoshop, use glitch tools to modify game behavior.

A workshop for games

Glitch tools let you edit games attributes, insert objects, cast spells, give super powers, and put yourself into the game. What glitch would you invent?

Bending is Easy

Filters are one click. Glitches are two steps: choose a tool and choose a character. It takes seconds to learn.

Learn code one glitch at a time.

Jay Silver GameBender

We've been making educational tools for more than a decade. From Drawdio to Makey Makey, we have shipped more than 1 million products. We believe everyone is an inventor, and we want to live in a world created by all of us. Makey Makey lets you reinvent the physical world by transforming bananas and pencils into game controllers. Now we want to make it possible to reinvent the digital world.

GameBender is the first game system made by EVERYONE, where you can do ANYTHING to ANY GAME. At MIT I helped create Scratch: a visual drag and drop code language. GameBender lets you play Scratch games and modify them while you play. If you want you can also learn to code by writing your own glitches and making your own games.
