Guile-2d is a 2D game programming library for GNU Guile. It is a layer above SDL and OpenGL that provides abstractions for common 2D game programming requirements such as Sprites, Animation, Tilesets, Tile maps, Scene graph, Input handling and Scripting.

Every programming language should have a fun, easy to use 2D game library. Guile-2d draws its inspiration from great libraries/frameworks such as LÖVE, Pygame, and Pyglet.
