Snap, shift, and pop05.05.16 · lua
Hackathons are neat, but there’s some really exciting code coming out of game jams like Ludum Dare. For LD35, Brice Thomas built a really unique 2D platformer in Lua with the LÖVE engine.
What’s neat about the game, Snap & Shift, is the camera mechanic. In addition to the WASD keyboard controls, your mouse acts like a camera shutter. Whenever you snap an item in the scene, it transforms, opening up or blocking your path.
