I'm building an engine in plain javascript and it's totally worth doing! I started working on it in order to get better at JS, but it's turned into a sandbox for learning architecture, unit testing, documentation, and a few other things, too. Whenever I want to learn something new, it's the first place I try those skills out.

I thought it was going to be a fairly simple project, but as I've added various mechanics and increased the scope of where I want it to go, it's become a much longer term project than I anticipated.

I highly recommend making an engine from scratch if you have the time and energy.
