AGen Version 1.3 User Manual

Welcome to the official AGen user manual. AGen is a cross-platform 2D engine and framework specifically designed for the easy and rapid programming of games, game prototypes or other visual applications. AGen is completely Lua scripted and includes various extensions to help reduce your development time. The engine can execute normal Lua scripts as well as bytecode pre-compiled using "luac.exe". There is no included IDE, but there are many free code editors (such as Notepad++) which can work with AGen/Lua quite well. Note that online documentation is usually updated more frequently than the manual included with the engine distribution. Visit us online at to find out more.
