An Introduction to Visionaire Studio: Adventure Game Engine
Visionaire Studio is an adventure game engine, which allows developers & artists to create point & click adventure games with ease.
The editor is a very straightforward & logic based tool, which allows developers to visually create & design their games, as opposed to having to program them - in the classic sense. In theory: you could potentially create a game of commercial caliber, without having to type a single line of code; the caliber part is up to you, the developer mind. All it requires, is a bit of logical thinking to program the game; everything else is down to artwork, music & sound design.
On the other hand: Visionaire Studio is not all about the simple things of life; such as: what side of the bed, one should get out of bed in the morning, or which side of bread to butter. No, far from it in fact as: besides the available in-editor action parts & functions, we also have a built-in text editor which allows you to enhance your game further, by typing up custom functions & scripts in various programming languages. Visionaire Studio actually comes with multiple Lua script & illios script functions, already included.
