guile-chickadee 0.10.0

Game development toolkit for Guile Scheme with SDL2 and OpenGL

Chickadee is a game development toolkit for Guile Scheme built on top of SDL2 and OpenGL. Chickadee aims to provide all the features that parenthetically inclined game developers need to make 2D (and eventually 3D) games in Scheme, such as:

  1. extensible, fixed-timestep game loop

  2. OpenGL-based rendering engine

  3. keyboard, mouse, controller input

  4. REPL-driven development model


Install guile-chickadee 0.10.0 as follows:

guix install guile-chickadee@0.10.0

Or install the latest version:

guix install guile-chickadee

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
