A simple pyglet-powered 2D game engine, with simple multiplayer support.

Project description

Briefly put, Yodine is a special, flexible, fun, easily extensible game, written in Python, with advanced plugin support, that uses pyglet and an involved Entity-Component-System infrastructure.

It is easy to write plugins for Yodine. And it is easy to feel the structure. (Just don’t let the cows do so. They’re evil monsters.)

Notice: the game is currently in a development stage. Expect bugs and a lack of features.

How to play

In order to install the game, simply run:

pip install yodine

Running it is quite simple, too:

python -m yodine.launcher

Writing Plugins

In order to write a plugin for Yodine, you may run the following module:

python -m yodine.utils.plugin_init

After answering a few questions, a generous, helpful filesystem structure will be generated. The files are heavily commented, to aid you in your quest to add to the game. Let’s build a castle?

Editing Maps

In order to create or edit a map for Yodine, simply run:

python -m yodine.editor

Hosting Servers

In order to host a server for Yodine, run the following:

YODINE_DEDICATED=y YODINE_LISTEN=8081 python -m yodine

Of course, replace the 8081 in YODINE_LISTEN=8081 by the desired listen port. The standard should be 8081, but since the default is not listening at all, there is unfortunately no obvious way to tell that.
