Ruby & Gosu FTW

Chingu is made in Ruby, the object oriented scripting language from Japan with a beautiful syntax and short readable code you'll fall in love with. Building on the solid Gosu, we get a german-precision-engineered base.

Get started

If You got Ruby on your system, just do gem install chingu.
See bundled examples to get going! Also check out the Documentation and browse the Chingu source.
