I recently found Defold and started playing with it. I haven't done anything impressive or particularly special, but I did cobble together a quick platformer, largely cribbed from the platformer example in Britzl's PublicExamples Repo: https://github.com/britzl/publicexamples; the game (based off a small group of Retro Gaming livestreamers I'm part of) is available at http://chrisplaysgames.com/retrosquadgame/
Over the process, I've now learned enough that I'm now actually able to cobble my way through by reading API docs, rather than just copy-pasting lines from other scripts Next Friday, I'll be doing a one-hour walkthrough/tutorial on what I did, how I did it, and how you can do the same, during a livestream on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/chrisplaysgamescpg/live), starting at 9:15PM Eastern time.
The process was fun, and I'm happy I was able to produce something kinda nifty. I hope I'll be able to apply a bit more polish, but I wanted to share what I've done.
(I'm working on cleaning up the code for publication as well.)
Thanks for the neat tool
