The Gamebook Engine

The Gamebook Engine is a cross-platform engine for writing gamebooks, such as the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series or the "Lone Wolf" series. TGE can interpret scripts that use the "Hyena" gamebook format.

      Release Notes: The most significant improvement in this version is the addition of sound. The Gamebook Engine can read your book to you, as long as audio files are provided with the book. Flight From the Dark includes audio files that were recorded using Neospeech for the Hyena Gamebook Reader.

        Release Notes: A few errors in ring-of-thieves.gamebook were fixed. A crash when loading a gamebook and then loading a gamebook again was fixed. More detailed installation and compile instructions were added to the README file. The Linux binary was linked against Qt 4.2.1. Previous TGE versions were linked against 4.4.0, and would not work properly if a previous Qt version was used at run-time. find-error.cpp was added to the source archive, which helps to find scripting errors in gamebooks.
