Introducing Adamantus
Description
Release date: Now Available
An Adventure Game Engine.

Dagon is a game engine developed by Senscape especially tailored for adventure games and based on open technologies. Featuring a deceptively simple scripting language, blazing fast performance and high portability supporting Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and iOS devices, the project aims to become a reference of the genre. This is also the backbone of the upcoming Asylum horror adventure. Dagon is free to use and will be open sourced soon.

Download Now
A brief playable demo or interactive teaser of Asylum is available with its fully commented source code. The download also includes the Dagon engine, and it's the ideal place to start getting involved.

You are welcome to discuss Dagon in our forums where you can also download standalone builds for your platform of choice: http://www.Senscape.net/forum

Technical Overview
The engine allows easy construction of node-based (so called “pseudo-3D”) games with a custom scripting language based on Lua, which is simple to learn and features a reduced set of instructions. The rotation in each node is panoramic (360 degrees) with added effects such simulating the breathing of the protagonist. Transitions between nodes are also sophisticated including head-bobbing, thus giving the impression that the character is actually walking in real 3D.

Key among the features of Dagon are high performance and portability, which means that games developed with the engine are expected to run smoothly even on lower-end systems. Windows, Mac OS X and major Linux distributions will be supported right out of the box, with iOS support in the short term. Support for building third person adventures is also planned.

The engine is completely based on open technologies, and therefore doesn’t require paying royalties or depends on prohibitive licenses or patents. The complete set of used software is as follows:
  • Base code: C++
  • Scripting library: Lua (http://www.lua.org)
  • Graphics library: OpenGL (http://www.opengl.org)
  • Font library: FreeType (http://www.freetype.org)
  • Audio library: OpenAL (http://www.openal.org)
  • Video codec: Theora (http://www.theora.org)
  • Audio codec: Vorbis Ogg (http://www.vorbis.com)
  • Other: GLEW (http://glew.sourceforge.net)

Haha, it's actually OK, we spoke with Steam and currently Dagon would offer no benefit for being distributed here as it's already open source. But! We're planning to release a version with a GUI interface and extra tools that could make it to Steam. For now we'll keep updating about its progress from here :)
