DAGON - An Adventure Game Engine

Description

Dagon is a game engine developed by Senscape especially tailored for adventure games and based on open technologies. Featuring a 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. Dagon is completely free to use.

Please note: The engine is still under heavy development and script compatibility breaking changes may be introduced until version 1.0 is released.

Installation

Project files for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 and Xcode 5.0 are provided in the visualc and xcode folders respectively. Dagon can be also built using Premake, a straightforward configuration tool: http://industriousone.com/premake

For more details on how to build on your specific system, please refer to premake4.lua.

Running

We always recommend downloading the official Dagon binaries for deploying your games: https://github.com/Senscape/Dagon/releases

You may use the readily available Asylum Interactive Teaser for testing, which also serves as an advanced and highly in-depth tutorial. It can be downloaded from Senscape's website: http://www.senscape.net/asylum-teaser

Its source code is also available in the following GitHub repo: https://github.com/Senscape/Asylum-Teaser

To create your own project, copy the Dagon binary in a folder with a main.lua file or indicate the name of your main script in the dagon.cfg file included in the examples folder.
