Talking The First Free Open Source Gamebook Engine


The Gamebook Engine

For the past few weeks, I've been developing a free, open source gamebook engine. You might remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books. Those are gamebooks.

The Gamebook Engine interprets games written using the Hyena gamebook format, which is an easy to learn text/lua hybrid. There is a (non-free) gamebook available for playing, called "Lone Wolf: Flight From The Dark".

If anyone wants to write their own gamebooks, they can use The Gamebook Engine, and can distribute the engine with their games free of charge.
