Top 9 Lua Game Projects

  • GitHub repo CorsixTH

    Open source clone of Theme Hospital

    Project mention: OpenSA - A recreation of Swarm Assault game in OpenRA engine. | | 2021-04-02

    Great, thanks for clarifying that the assets are not libre, which is exactly the same as Theme Hospital. Have a look at their wording below and see if you would be willing to put something similar in your readme. As you say, it's abandonware, but can you at least make sure the download on first run prompts for confirmation, so the user can make an informed decision about that?

  • GitHub repo WolfHUD

    Payday 2 HUD

    Project mention: Void UI scoreboard counts all kills twice | | 2021-04-11

    Yeah, easiest is to use this fork since it has the fix I made for this plus some other fixes and the official version seems to be abandoned. You could also manually edit the files based on my PR but I recommend the fork.

  • GitHub repo ObAddon

    A repository of community-built prefabs and other enhancements for Oblige 7.70

    Project mention: Doom maps with gardens or parks? | | 2021-03-18
  • GitHub repo Warcraft-Guardians-of-Azeroth

    "Guardians of Azeroth" is a mod with a worldwide development team, based on the Warcraft universe by Blizzard Entertainment. In this mod, our team is working to recreate the world of Azeroth in all of its glory, particularly focusing on the story of the classic Warcraft strategy games and World of Warcraft Classic.

    Project mention: Warcraft: Guardians of Azeroth 2 - Developer Diary №3 - Horde, Alliance, and Unions. | | 2021-04-10

    I want to remind you that the mod is still WIP, so you can support us by Patreon or Joining the Team. If you have passion and patience, we can help you to learn the fields like 3D models, map, and scripting, bringing the mod closer to release.

  • GitHub repo nvim-tetris

    Bringing emacs' greatest feature to neovim - Tetris!

    Project mention: I created a Neovim Tetris plugin | | 2021-03-16
  • GitHub repo OpenNefia

    Moddable engine reimplementation of the Japanese roguelike Elona.

    Project mention: Emacs is the 2D Command-line Interface | | 2021-03-20

    Well, it's not Elisp, but:

    It's an engine rewrite of an old roguelike I used to play in Lua. I'm trying to experiment with making a game where the engine is similar in flexibility to Emacs.

    It has an Emacs frontend, and I designed it with the zealotry of an Emacs user, meaning it has advice, hooks, interactive evaluation and runtime module hotloading. You can run anything the engine can run from a REPL (and cause all the state to become broken easily).

  • GitHub repo POD-for-CK2

    Princes of Darkness Crusader Kings II (CK2) Modification

    Project mention: Official Princes Of Darkness Metamorphosis Update | | 2021-01-05

    That is being worked on as we speak, but there is a list of the ones currently in the game here:

  • GitHub repo moonshotadv

    LÖVE2D game for github 2020 Game Off game jam

    Project mention: How should I load levels? | | 2021-02-19

    I made a jam game a few months ago where I abstracted out the levels into a JSON file. I'd imagine you could do something similar and it'd likely be more flexible than your bitmap method. In case it's useful, here is the actual example I'm talking about:

  • GitHub repo DroidSpot

    DroidSpot game for Windows (Demo)
