The origin of ReadyCode.
ReadyCode started as a project based our personal experiences adding modding support to indie and AAA games. We discovered that the industry as a whole struggles with the many technical aspects of creating high-quality modding tools.
ReadyCode has been fortunate to gather support from the top VC investment companies as well as industry investors such as Overwolf. We currently have paying customers and a base of players in live game projects that are excited by the creation possibilities that our technology brings.
