Also, check out PICO-8 and TIC-80. The latter is a free/open-source spin on PICO-8.

Both are "fantasy consoles" (virtual machines) that come with a code editor, sprite editor, map editor, and SFX mixer built in, all with retro fonts and graphics :)

Unity's great, too.

I'm really liking Lua as a language, though! Aside from the fact that everything's a global unless you force it to be a local variable.


Nice! Thanks for the tip about PICO-8 and TIC-80, I didn't know them, and they look super interesting!
