I just have some quick questions before buying
does this engine support..
--custom game editors?
--desktop executable?
--color palettes?

does it use html and javascript?

I want to build a desktop game that is based around an editor but I don't know if this can be done easily with impactjs

if not can these features be added?

does this engine support custom game editors?
Like what? It includes a level editor for building your world and adding entities to the world. If you mean a third party editor like Tiled, then there's this. Not quite sure what you're talking about though.

does this engine support desktop executable
Yep.

does this engine support color palettes
No. Impact expects you to provide image files (such as PNG) for your graphics.

does it use html and javascript?
Yes. Everything is written in JavaScript. The game is rendered onto an HTML canvas element.

--I mean like custom built editors that I program for runtime

Still not sure what kind of editor you mean. Game editor for creating maps? If so, yeah, your could make your own no problem. It would be simple to have your editor create the JavaScript objects Impact uses to render your game world.

can palettes be supported
Not out of the box, but sure, you can implement this. The engine is quite simple. So while it does take care of a lot of heavy lifting, is also does a good job of staying out of your way, letting you implement whatever you need.
