Shibui Game Engine

This page is a draft and pretty much a work in progress. Expect things to change a lot.


My intentionally restrictive game engine, built on top of svelte and my own tooling. Not public for now.

Why I decided to make games?

Why a new game engine?

Why naming it shibui?

Imposed Restrictions

  • Monochromatic screen

  • Mostly text-based

  • No Keyboard Interaction

  • All games should be fully playable using only six on screen buttons


  • Rat's Den — First game made with the Shibui Engine. A gambling game.

Ideas under consideration

  • Dungeon crawler

  • Farming game (deconstructed harvest moon)

  • Gambling (blackjack-like)

  • Horse Racing
