Hi! I made a game for LOWREZJAM with Defold and some people liked it. Any reference with HoMM series is purely coincidental
I heard about Defold in early June, started playing with it and made a simple puzzle game. Learning and development was going so fast (comparing to Godot) that I decided to participate in game jam for the first time in my life. I am hobbyist programmer, but even my low skills were enough to make a game in just 2 weeks with Defold!
What I liked about engine:
- Fantastic build size and time
- Lua modules. Almost all game logic, states, predefined data are moved to modules. The game can be easily ported (but will not be ) to other lua-scripting engines (Love2d, TIC80, etc.)
- Despite the cool extension system, the game was made without any dependencies. A pure Defold was enough for a simple jam game.
I ran into some problems with displaying fonts in HTML5 builds: transparency did not work and small characters were not displayed. I had to give up fading and get rid of commas
Wrote this using google translate, but hope it’s clear.
