  • SLUDGE has always been great. But now, it’s also a programming language. SLUDGE (standing for Scripting Language for Unhindered Development of a Gaming Environment) is a system by which anyone (within reason) can make an adventure game. It runs in any recent version of Windows and now also on Mac OS X and Linux. It’s high-res (any resolution you want) and uses 32-bit colour.

    To make your own SLUDGE games you’ll be needing the SLUDGE Development Kit; to play the games, the SLUDGE Engine is required (it’s included in the development kit download and should typically be distributed along with the games).

    SLUDGE was originally created by Hungry Software and is now free software! It is licensed under the terms of the LGPL (the GTK+ Dev Kit under the GPL) and the source code is available for download.

  • Welcome to the eAdventure project website

    The eAdventure platform is a research project aiming to facilitate the integration of educational games and game-like simulations in educational processes in general and Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) in particular. It is being developed by the e-UCM e-learning research group at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, with three main objectives:

    Reduction of the development costs for educational games
    Incorporation of education-specific features in game development tools
    Integration of the resulting games with existing courseware in Virtual Learning Environments
    From this website we wish to promote the use of the tools developed as part of the eAdventure project. The core of the eAdventure project is the eAdventure educational game engine, that runs games defined using the eAdventure language. Authors can use the graphical editor to create the games or directly access the human-readable source documents that describe the adventures using XML markup. With eAdventure, any person can write an educational point & click adventure game.
