#What does the name lambda mean?

It's named after the lambda character. I don't really know why, it just sounded cool to me, and i couldn't come up with another name.

#Building

Building lambda is an easy process

#Build Requirements

  • Java 17+
  • Gradle(use the wrapper, if in you don't want to install it)
  • OpenAL
  • OpenGL compatible graphics card
  • Git

#Building

First clone the source as follows:

git clone https://git.sr.ht/~interfiber/lambda

Then change into the folder:

cd lambda

And finally build a release jar file:

./gradlew desktop:dist
# or use: gradlew desktop:dist for windows users

The result jar file can be found in: desktop/build/libs/desktop-[VERSION].jar

#Questions, people might have

#pls use github!! :)

no.

#PORT THIS GAME TO RUST OR C++, IT WILL BE SOOOO MUCH FASTER!!!!!!!11!

I like rust, but it's not ready to develop games yet. The performance also doesn't really matter that much, because this is a 2d game.

#Can you port this game to m1/m2 chips?

Since its written in java it should run, but the natives libraries used might not be compiled for m1 chips. If in does not work use rosetta

#There's weird things happening in the result build for the main branch

The main branch might contain features that are being built, so they might not be completed yet.

#Why did you make this game free & open-source?

Because I felt like it
