In two days we got:
- 300 visits on Gamamoto for the announcing post;
I asked a related question on Gamedev Q&A on how to name our “thing” which also got some interesting reactions: Clarification on the “game engine” notion needed .
So this is enough positive feedback (Gamamoto is not yet a very well known site), so indeed we are going to produce and release the game engine.
What the game engine is
- a set of web pages that allow to run the story step by step in emulator mode
- support for creating a real game running on the story skeleton
- narrative structure,
- game environment state
- player state
- NPC’s state
License and supporting the project
Our plan is to release the game engine and examples under MIT license so everyone can use it also in commercial projects for free. We may write some kind of paid e-book with illustration of the theory behind it so to get some support for continued development of the project, and maybe activate also a “donate” possibility.
