  • UnicornConsole

    Unicorn Console: create quick fantasy game in Rust/Python/Lua/Rhai/Wasm !

  • game-engine-2d

    Planimeter Game Engine 2D - LÖVE-based game engine for Lua

    Project mention: Fighting games use delay-based and rollback netcode | | 2023-01-22

    I don't think it's unpopular. We need more and better game software, what exists today is unsatisfactory for a plethora of reasons. I'm personally interested in this because I ship Planimeter Game Engine 2D, which comes with client-side prediction standard, and it's the largest pure-Lua game engine on GitHub.[1]

    Project mention: Anyone have good restart() code? | /r/PlaydateDeveloper | 2023-03-05

    If you use the Noble Engine library, you can organize your game code into scenes, which you can restart by transitioning a scene to itself. All your objects and variables are cleared and reset. It's as simple as:

  • matchanovel

    A visual novel framework library for Defold.

  • PGM_CE

    A simple game engine for Sony PSP

  • DroidSpot

    DroidSpot game for Windows (Demo)
