What was the quest?
Excalibur is a simple, free game engine written in TypeScript for making 2D games in HTML5 canvas. Our goal is to make it incredibly simple to create 2D HTML/JS games, for folks new to game development as well as experienced game developers. We take care of all of the boilerplate engine code, cross-platform targeting (using browserstack 😎), and more so you don't have to. Use as much or as little as you need!
