※ it's beta for now

A functional game engine that can create emoji games.

nemo emodius

Major Features

  • Easy to create games with powerful functional languages ​​(PureScript).
  • Only emojis can be used as materials. Instead, there is room for creativity.
  • JavaScript knowledge is basically unnecessary. You can concentrate on implementing game logic with functional languages.
  • You can play on any device on which the browser runs.

Why PureScript

When making games in functional language, there were the following options.

Haskell -> If everything could be done with this, it was the best. However, it is difficult to play on any device.

Elm -> It was one of the good options when thinking about device independence. But there is no type class support. It is also recommended that you follow the Elm architecture.

PureScript -> There is type class support like Haskell. It will also be compiled into Javascript. Therefore, you can play on any device browser!

Why Only Emojis

Something restricted stimulates creativity.

I was very inspired by fantasy consoles represented by PICO-8.

There are severe restrictions on sprites, sounds, capacity, etc. that can be used.

On the contrary, These constraints inspire creativity and making the game more fun.

Just like this, I think that it is very interesting to have constraints that only emojis can be used in the Web platform.

Play Online

You can also add games you made with NEMO here.
