Couldn't get it to run on Windows 10. Crashed while starting the game.

Does your machine support OpenGL3.3+? You can check it fast using this program.

Yes? It's using OpenGL 4.5.

That's odd - I've set up a Windows 10 machine to confirm and can't crash it. If you're interested enough to run a debug build, ping me on twitter.

Besides the confusing controls it is very fun. I am looking forward to more updates to this game. :)

NIce concept, important things may be another color and controls are messy.

controls are straight trash

crashes under a little pressure, hoping the keys dont get too spacey beyond the b button as well. really dig the look the programming and text/title graphic have going together.


Why there are so many shaders?

For efficiency and smoothness.

How do you learn shaders? Is there any tutorial or so?

Depends on your background. I noticed you are using Lua on one of your games, so hopefully this link could be helpful.

Thank you.

BTW, Löve uses GLSL as well.


You have an awesome framework here!
Looking forward to see what will you do next!!

i loved the demo, please more!

This is very well done! I love the art style, and the tutorial is very easy to follow and remember.
