For those interested in a free open source lua engine, I gathered various links to resources on the web to help you get started with moai.

Games made with moai:

  • Broken Age
  • SpaceBase DF9
  • Invisible Inc

Why use moai?

  • It is open source, so you don't have to wait for someone else to fix the bugs that might be stopping you, and you can optimize whatever part of the engine you like.
  • Moai is also free, and all you need to do is credit the engine, either in your splash screen, or in the credits. It also allows you to add features at the engine level.
  • lua is awesome to work with. fast, lightweight, with a good C API. And the code written by other is very readable.
  • It is easy to get into. You have very little setup to do before running.
  • It is also natively made for 2D.
