    Bare-bones, highly modular game engine for 2D 8-bit games.

    EightBittr is an in-progress experimental game engine targeted to 8-bit retro 2D games. It's got some great features built-in, such as:

    • Blazingly fast start times:
      • Lazily-instantiated and -loaded components
      • Lazily-instantiated actor classes with inline POJO sprite declarations
      • <150KB minified / <30KB gzipped TTFI game components
    • 🔧 Easy scaffolding for extensible mods, level editors, and random map generation
    • 🖐 Touch UI support with UserWrappr and TouchPassr
    • 💉 Full testability with dependency-injectable, swappable APIs for data storage and time management

    ❌ ⚠ EightBittr isn't production ready or well-supported - you're probably better off using a more standard game engine. ⚠ ❌

    Running Tests

    yarn run test

    Tests are written in Mocha and Chai. Their files are written using alongside source files under src/ and named *.test.ts?. Whenever you add, remove, or rename a *.test.t* file under src/, watch will re-run yarn run test:setup to regenerate the list of static test files in test/index.html. You can open that file in a browser to debug through the tests, or run yarn test:run to run them in headless Chrome.
