The Arduboy Game Loader

AGL stands for Arduboy Game Loader and is an application used for managing and uploading your arduboy games, demos and applications.

While one can compile every game from source, people just want to play a game will benifit of the ease of use of a Game Loader that uses pre-compiled files. Our Loader can upload simple .hex files, BUT the real advantage is it can manage .arduboy files and show the metadata.

The .arduboy file

Why .arduboy files? While pre-compiled files are easy for users to upload, it is still missing extra info, like screenshots, a manual and other metadata. We decided to set a minimum that should go into .arduboy file and created a loader/manager that can upload those files and show the extra information.
