Getting Started

Hello! This document will help you get started using Hex Engine to create a 2D game for the browser.

This guide assumes you are already familiar with JavaScript.

To begin, you'll first need to install these prerequisites:

  • Node.js
  • A web browser. Google Chrome's canvas is pretty fast, so that's what we recommend- but your game will work in any modern web browser.
  • A code editor. We recommend Visual Studio Code for the best experience, but anything that can edit plain text files will work.

Once you've got those installed, you can continue onward to First Time Setup.
