Overview of decks in a Codecks project
Made for Game Developers by Game Developers
We know game development! And we know you need an elegant yet powerful and reliable tool that helps you collaborate and release your milestones on time and scope.
Inspired by Beautiful Trading Card Games
A well designed trading card layout allows to extract a lot of information about its content at a glance. We took a lot of these clues to allow you to recognise the state of your project by just a quick look at your cards.

Wide mode for cards
Game Design Documents Welcome
Cards can be as short as a brief task or as big as a whole GDD chapter. Reference other cards, use extensive formatting, easily attach images, see detailed text changes. In Codecks your whole Game Design Document and your tasks can live in the same space.
No more Loose Ends
We all know those small tasks and conversations that get forgotten somewhere in the gaps. Codecks makes sure that everybody stays in the loop and on track in real-time with our unique no-loose-ends notification system.

After trying pretty much all of the competitors, we settled on Codecks as the one we're most comfortable with for our varied team of ~10 artists, designers, developers and producers. The adaptive design and visual card ordering is easy to get into and perfect for keeping track of multiple projects at once. Also a big bonus: the direct feedback loop for bugs and feature requests with the developers - our wishes are being heard and responded to.

We've tried a lot of agile PM solutions in the past. With Codecks it seems like we've found our final best fit. It's lean and easy to get into. Yet it's powerful and satisfies all our needs regarding agile project management.

If you've ever felt like falling asleep while using Jira, Trello or writing the 451st user story, this is the PJM tool for you. Elegant, responsive & more fun than shuffling sleeved cards.

Codecks is playful, easy to use and well arranged. I can manage tasks detailed enough to work efficiently but I do not lose any time on juggling with the project management software.

It's fairly obvious that it's created by game developers - there's clearly been a lot of thought put into what works and what doesn't.

Our Mission

Dear Game Developer,

project management tools are notoriously unsatisfying to use. We found all the tools that we tried to be either too complex or too simplistic. We believe that gamedevs deserve their own production tool that is just right for them.

Codecks is a project by the indie game company Maschinen-Mensch and some extraordinarily skilled web developers. We've been working on it since 2014 and believe that we've created something special:

A tool that aims at just the right amount of complexity and is able to excite creative visual thinkers and productivity fans alike. Any task planning tool gets more useful if everybody on the team is using it and that's why joyful interaction is at the core of Codecks instead of an afterthought.

Codecks is our love letter to the people who make games.

- The Codecks Team

Gamedev is hard. Make it easier with Codecks.
