Minor problem in Side Scroller Tutorial (SOLVED)


According to this tutorial:

“Restart the game by closing the window (or press Escape) to exit, then select Project ▸ Build from the editor menu.”

I can’t close the window using the escape key (maybe because it’s not defined in game.input_binding?), is this supposed to be a default action? This is on Linux Mint 18.3.

Also spotted a typo:

“Try moving the space ship with the arrow-keys on your keyboard. Notice how the it moves faster now.”


Make sure you have Escape Quits Game ticked in File->Preferences…



Cheers, maybe that should be pointed out in the tutorial :smiley:


Fixed – thanks for reporting!
