Artix Engine - 2D Python Game Engine

Artix Engine is a simple 2D game engine written in Python that offers visual programming through an event system and provides object behaviors called attributes. It includes a file manager for importing textures, a built-in physics engine, and a project manager to efficiently organize your game projects. With Artix Engine, you can export your games to a Python file, which uses the Pygame library to run.

This project is still in a very early stage. So if you encounter any Issues report them to the repository.
