Video progress of building Jewel Defender - my first game - Session one

I am learning Lua and Playdate, and am making a video log of it. First part is out today.

In this I start with the basic example here:

and add a scene system to it and a basic Entity Component System.

I intended this to be just 30 minutes, but as really my first foray into playdate & lua coding, there were some learning and debugging along the way, but it should be good for beginners to follow along with as it shows how to debug your code and think through issues.
