Pipmak 0.2.6 released

Pipmak is a cross-platform game engine and authoring environment for point-and-click adventure games in the style of the Myst series. It supports panoramic nodes and uses Lua for scripting.

Release 0.2.6 includes a variety of bug fixes and minor new features. Most important among them a 'New Project' button in the main menu that creates a skeleton project to build on - a feature that I hope will make Pipmak more accessible to newcomers, even though it does not actually do much. There are also some improvements in the way mouse modes (direct/joystick) are handled.... read more

Pipmak 0.2.5 released

Pipmak is a cross-platform game engine and authoring environment for point-and-click adventure games in the style of the Myst series. It supports panoramic nodes and uses Lua for scripting.

Finally, Pipmak 0.2.5 is here, and this release adds one of the most requested features: Pipmak can now play sounds! Although only a single file format, Ogg Vorbis, is supported at this time, a solid foundation of functionality is provided that hopefully covers the needs of most projects concerning sound effects and background sound. Other new features include transition effects at arbitrary times (not just for node transitions), disabling controls, and more. In addition, the reference documentation is now nearly complete, with no more function descriptions missing.... read more

Pipmak 0.2.3 released

Pipmak is a cross-platform game engine and authoring environment for point-and-click adventure games in the style of the Myst series. It supports panoramic nodes and uses Lua for scripting.

Version 0.2.3 introduces some major new features, most notably a new type of node (the "panel", some sort of "overlay window" that's fixed to the screen rather than the slide/panorama background), and the ability to display several nodes simultaneously, on top of each other. This opens the way for things like inventories, picture frames, pop-up menus, and floating utility windows. See it in action in the updated demo project and read the details in the documentation. Get Pipmak for Mac OS X (universal binary, now!), Windows, and Linux as well as the source code from http://pipmak.sourceforge.net/downloads.php or read the detailed release notes at http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=397990&group_id=112801 .
