Hello everyone!
We are a small studio ( 3 people at the moment ) from Shanghai.

We are currently working on a game project named Eastward.

In the world of EW, human societies are isolated and shrinking, due to some severe environmental problem. You will be playing a ‘father’ with a following ‘daughter’ , and go through this post-apocalyptic world ( well that does sound familiar … ).

The game will be an action adventure. We hope it will be like a Zelda game with some JRPG style storyline. It’s going to be released on Steam first ( of course we’d like to get it on the consoles if it’s possible )

The game use a special “retro-pixel + 3D lighting” visual style. We aim to achieve a feeling close to Japanese animation from 90s.

we are using an in-house framework based great MOAI engine (Getmoai.com) . It’s a cross-platform C++ engine written for Lua. We have an IDE on top of MOAI with help of Python & QT. We will write more about the engine part in future updates.

The project is still in very early stage. We’ll try best to keep updating this devlog as often as possible.

Fantastic performance and cross platform support for all mobile and desktop platforms (and possibly the PlayStation console as well within the community), free and open source so you can code any special capability you may have in the future (unlike proprietary engines) and very tight, helpful community.

Development is as "high level" or "low level" as you prefer ... you can stick to basic Lua scripting (sort of like JavaScript) and create a full game without ever dabbling in the C++ and OpenGL side of things, but if you want to delve deeper, the option is always there.

It's not as "do-everything-for-you" as engines like Unity or GameMaker though, you will need to be able to code a bit and understand the fundamentals of the platforms you target.

I wholeheartedly recommend MOAI for development, especially for smaller studios. The cost of using it is extremely small (0$), the community support is incredible and as a engine it's extremely flexible and easy to understand.

Definitely an engine worth considering if you want to develop mobile games. If you don't know lua, dont let that discourage you - it is fairly easy to pick up and has lots of documentation.
