Welcome!

This is the wiki of the blitwizard engine. You can create games with blitwizard!

This code will show a simple hello world greeting:

-- Open a window at size 300x100:
blitwizard.graphics.setMode(300, 100, "Hello world", false)
 
-- Create hello world text:
local text = blitwizard.font.text:new("Hello World from blitwizard!")

How to run it: Simply put this into a file named "game.lua" where "Run blitwizard.bat" is (the folder where you extracted all of blitwizard), and then double-click "Run blitwizard.bat"!

Doesn't work? (or you use Linux/Mac OS X?) Get more detailed instructions here!

Why should I use blitwizard?

The blitwizard engine was made for Lua, and it is optimised for rapid 2d game development. It sacrifices some detail control for offering a very powerful and expressive object oriented api.
