ggez is a Rust library to create a Good Game Easily.
More specifically, ggez is a lightweight cross-platform game framework for making 2D games with minimum friction. It aims to implement an API based on (a Rustified version of) the LÖVE game framework. This means it contains basic and portable 2D drawing, sound, resource loading and event handling, but finer details and performance characteristics may be different than LÖVE.
ggez is not meant to be everything to everyone, but rather a good base upon which to build. Thus it takes a fairly batteries-included approach without needing a million additions and plugins for everything imaginable, but also does not dictate higher-level functionality such as physics engine or entity component system. Instead the goal is to allow you to use whichever libraries you want to provide these functions, or build your own libraries atop ggez.

Here’s my first video devlog ever:
I hope to keep these videos short and release them every week or two.
I’ve been mostly working on small visual improvements.
First, a tile under the cursor is highlighted now. Highlighting is disabled though on touch devices (by ignoring an event if its delta movement is zero).
Next, agents now can be flipped horizontally to match their action’s direction. I’ve wanted to add this for a long time because sometimes units were attacking each other backward and it was weird.
Added simple dodge animations when an attack misses
A helper message is now shown when an agent’s move is interrupted.
Now agents have special sprite frames for some abilities. It’s a compromise between having real animations and only having static pieces.
Also, spearman will get special directional attack frames soon, because he can attack enemies two tiles away from him and it looks weird with completely static sprite sometimes.
There’re a couple of non-code updates too.
I’ve added a “Roadmap” section to the readme to show in which direction the project moves.
I also added a new “Inspiration” section with a list of games that inspire me to work on Zemeroth.
The game now has a text logo. It’s a manually “low poly vectorized” text written with the Old London font. Not sure if it really fits the game, but it’ll do for now.
I got the ozkriff.games domain (but haven’t created a landing page there yet, so it redirects to the devlog for now).
And I’ve revived my Patreon page: patreon.com/ozkriff
That’s all news for today. :)
