Flexible level editorProject mention: How to build maps efficiently | /r/gamedev | 2023-11-27
A more sophisticated approach may be to use something like Tiled (https://www.mapeditor.org), but it typically takes a lot of code to to parse a Tiled map, so I wouldn’t start there. The exact needs of your game will dictate the approaches you use. Starting simple means you can make good, visible progress getting your game to work. And I’m sure that plenty of real games have shipped where the levels are just text files.

Ebitengine - A dead simple 2D game engine for GoProject mention: Making Games in Go for Absolute Beginners | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-11-24
I love Go, yet I've never thought of it as a language with usable game engines. I'm extremely happy to find I was very wrong about that!
I'm woefully behind the curve on compiling to WASM, though, and I've yet to experiment much with tinygo so I have no idea how far I would get in creating a game people could enjoy in a browser without having to download a big bundle of assets. It's reassuring to see WASM mentioned explicitly as a compilation target  by Ebitengine though.
