A 2D game engine inspired by the Nintendo DS's 2D engine

This is the README for the Project Burro Game Engine version 0.1. This is currently pre-alpha code. I'm aiming for Dec 2024 release. The nickname for version Project Burro v0.1 is "Common Markdown".

This is a 2D game engine I started writing on a whim after reading about the internals of the Nintendo DS's 2D engine. I really liked the idea of the challenge of what was essentially a Nintendo DS simulator.

It is yet another 2D sprite based engine. For no particular reason than perversity, it is based on GTK for windowing, Cairo for drawing, Pulseaudio for sound, and Guile for scripting.

This code not yet usable in any fashion.
