Hexworks is a friendly bunch of developers who like to write programs either full time or as a hobby. Our mission is to build a community of like-minded people who want to learn and help each other. Our focus is on indie and roguelike games. We'd like to see these communities thrive and to make the lives of those developers easier.
Feel free to join our Discord Server if you'd like to join us!
We are working on multiple projects, all open source which might be useful for you if you are working on, or planning to work on a game.
Zircon is extensible, multiplatform and user-friendly tile engine. You can use it if you want to create a roguelike game, since it supports ASCII and CP437 tiles. If you want a more traditional tile-based game Zircon is also a good option as it comes with some nice and open source graphical tilesets out of the box.
Take a look:
Mixite is a GUI agnostic hexagonal grid library. Supports a multitude of grid layouts including hexagonal, triangular, rectangular and more. it is also a multiplatform project so you can use it in the browser, on Android, or in your desktop app as well!
If you have excess creative power and you want to contribute to open source just take a look at our project board for Zircon.
