Beginning with an Idea

Welcome All to this new site where I’ll write down all the information about this new tool I’m developing.

 

The main purpose is to create a web-oriented application to develop Graphic Adventure Games using the same concepts and design practices as you’ve learnt from WME.

So as a brief this is intended to be a WME runtime for the web, or in other words, a WME 1.x clone.

 

Not all the functionalities will be implemented as nowdays web standards and browsers aren’t powerful enough to provide OS applications-like performance.

With this I mean 3D support won’t be implemented so only 2D functionality will be there, but who knows, maybe in a near future I can start working on this as WEBGL standard is being developed pretty fast.

 

Handheld devices are in the scope but my latest tests prove the performance isn’t as good as I wanted so focusing on this task is not my priority right now.

 

Of course visual tools will be developed too, in WME words: SpriteEdit, SceneEdit… and so on. But at the beginning stage I would like to make TinyWME compatible so it can reads WME file formats with the advantage you can develop on M$ Windows using current WME tools.

 

At this point only modern web broswers that support HTML5 standard are set as target platforms: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome…

 

I’ve tested also IE 9 RC with no success as it’s implementation of the HTML5 standard isn’t as “standard” as it should so several pieces of code need to be adapted.

 

So finally and after ALL these words 🙂 I’ll post a new entry with the link so you can test the demo by yourself.
