Futile (2021 Edition)
Futile is a code-centric 2D framework for Unity.
This is for those of you who want to do everything in code with as little editor integration as possible.
If you've used Cocos2D or Flash you should feel right at home.
It's in development and completely undocumented... but it works.
2021 note from Matt: Futile hasn't been updated a whole lot since I first released it, but it has been used (and continues to be used) in a bunch of real games

Futile works great with all versions of Unity (but let me know if you have any issues!)

Futile contains many ideas from Prime 31's UIToolkit: github.com/Prime31/UIToolkit
The MiniJSON parser is by http://github.com/darktable
The demo project also uses Prime31's fantastic GoKit tweening library: github.com/Prime31/GoKit
The code and art assets (except for the font) can be used for anything, however the sound effects and music are not to be used in anything else
