[ 日本語 ]

nemo emodius

Major Features

  • You can write game logic well in a functional language (PureScript).
  • You can express various ideas by combining emojis.
  • Easy to distribute to any browser.

Why PureScript

It is a functional language that can guarantee both descriptive power and distributability.

Why Emoji

Because there is room for creation if there is constraint.

I am a fan of PICO-8. PICO-8 has strict restrictions such as dot picture and capacity, but I think that these make creating game more fun.

In the same way, if there are restrictions that only emojis can be used, there is a different enjoyment of game making.
