Technical Overview #

Libraries #

Shortbow is a collection of libraries to facilitate the creation of your next awesome 2D web-based game, written in Dart, a modern object-oriented programming language. Some of the elements of this library are more specific to writing a simple game engine, and others are more related to game mechanics or common patterns needed.

geometry.dart #

Math functions and value-type primitives used in the engine.

mechanics.dart #

Different mechanics-related APIs, such as dice, decks of cards, and more.

painting.dart #

Low-level 2D painting library that abstracts away platform-specific APIs.

v0.0.1 #

  • Initial release with Point, Rectangle, Color, and DiceRoller.
