Did you try this out, Josh? I’m wondering if it’s worth learning.

It looks fun, and my son wants to help design levels with me, but I haven’t taken the time to work through any of it. Looks like it’s a relatively new library, so not a lot of learning resources yet (I usually prefer books, etc. to videos).

I went through the 5 Tips video above and got it working with Parcel and TypeScript. It was fun and seems like a good framework to work on with kids.

I put my code here if you want to skip the video and just see the code.

An alternative in JS that has more learning resources is Phaser.js.
