Menrva V2.x.x

Asset reloading and hot-code reloading

Builtin tracing profiler.

Minimal interface between engine and application.

Extremely lightweight but with big utility library for games and apps.

Instead of trying to be a monolithic game editor for everyone, this is a game kernel that allows developers to make their own editor quickly, using pre-made and tested modules which are completely replaceable; unlike with most engines.

Shipped with A Game With Small Planets.

Used in Sailing Game, Level Editor, Endless Runner, Rogue Clone, Game AI Project, Sheep and Wolves, Snake Clone, and some other undisclosed projects involving metamathematics.

Endless Runner

A more literal approach on the endless runner theme.

Featuring:

  • 2D Physics.
  • Replays.
  • Looping/Scrolling textures.
  • An air vent.
  • A level editor.
  • Tomatoes.

Made with Menrva.

Level Editor

for a Tower Defense/Roguelike game

I also worked on gameplay code and was part of the game design team.

Made with Menrva.

Frau Holle

Knytt Stories Level

Designed a level to tell the fairytale "Frau Holle" for Knytt Stories, with the help of Petrea Kaðlín Sigmundsdóttir.

The challenge was to tell the story without writing _any_ gameplay code except for what was already in Knytt by default.

You can download it here, you need to download Knytt Stories first and then install the level (you can do it directly inside Knytt).
