Clickteam is a software company founded in 1993 by François Lionet, Yves Lamoureux and Francis Poulain and headquartered in Paris, France. Clickteam is perhaps best known for the creation of a script-free programming tool that allows users to create video games or other interactive software using a range of GUI tools.


Before co-founding Clickteam, François Lionet was the programmer of STOS BASIC, a programming language released in 1988 for the Atari ST, and AMOS BASIC, a more advanced programming language released in 1990 for the Commodore Amiga. Both of these have since been released in open-source form on the Clickteam corporate website. Yves Lamoureux was also a successful game developer prior to co-founding Clickteam, working with multiple companies on games.[1]


Clickteam's debut software was Klik & Play, released in 1994 as commercial, proprietary software;[2] this marked the team's first successful software release.

A version for educational use dubbed Klik & Play For Schools was also released, as freeware, to be used exclusively for school activities.[3]

Klik & Play For Schools was available for download in Clickteam's website during the course of 2006, now being available for the public in general. Subsequent releases included, released in 1996, Clickteam's second product, Click and Create later renamed Multimedia Fusion Express which included more advanced features which the original Klik & Play lacked, such as scrolling, and a timeline editor, 3D game-making tool Jamagic; The Games Factory; The Games Factory 2; and Multimedia Fusion. Clickteam's most recent application is Clickteam Fusion 2.5 (CF 2.5). This title is the successor to Multimedia Fusion 2, the company's most well-received software application to date. The Fusion series was designed to be a user-friendly yet powerful drag-and-drop game and application creation program, easily accessible to either those well-versed or inexperienced in programming.[4][5] The most notable games made using Clickteam Engines are those in the Five Nights At Freddy's series.
