    • Loads glb/gltf, fbx, obj, ply, png, jpeg and many other formats.
    • Optimizes your assets
    • Integrated web server for rapid iteration
  • JavaScript/TypeScript API
    • Custom reusable components
    • Integrate any JavaScript library
    • Expose properties to the Editor


Thanks to the power of WebAssembly and optimized shaders, Wonderland Engine can draw many dynamic objects with a single draw call.

Small Size 

Instead of parsing data at runtime, the editor tools optimize your assets during packaging into an efficient binary format. This format is loaded super fast by the runtime, as no text needs to be parsed.

VR & AR 

The Wonderland Engine was specifically designed for WebXR (WebVR and WebAR). With it come integrations with 8thwall and AR.js, controller input and WebXR Device API support.

Development Speed 

Leverage the iteration times of the web. Fast packaging together with automatic reloads and file watching allow almost instant feedback on your project.

Visual Editor & Components 

With our editor comes a range of pre-written JavaScript components that you can use and configure through the UI Editor, no need to write code.

JavaScript API 

Our JavaScript API allows you to integrate anything you can do in a browser with the engine.
