Latest commit c6fb9a6 Oct 15, 2017

Guys, this branch is used for porting neko8 to c++. It is not stable or usable yet, we will announce, when it will be.


Neko8 is a fantasy console, inspired by pico8, liko12 and tic80. It is open-source and fully free. Its goal is to be a fun and useful tool for game development and especially for game jams.

Currently it features:

  • Pico8-like api
  • Code editor
  • Sprite editor
  • Map editor prototype
  • Terminal
  • Build-in API docs
  • Support for both lua and asm programming (planning add BASIC support)
  • Some easter eggs ;)

Our developers can be found on discord.

Installing ang running

Download and extract the source. In the root folder run:

love .

You will need löve2d 0.10.2 to run neko8. Löve2d version is really important!
