Indielib moves from SVN to Git


octocat We have decided to move the Indielib repository from Subversion to Git. Hopefully this will give us an easier way to experiment with new code, faster commits and offcause it allways great to get a new toy tool to play with.

The full new repository URL will be posted in the Forum and the wiki when the move is complete. As the octocat picture hints, the new repository will be placed at GitHub.

Changin from DevIL (OpenIL) to FreeImage


OpenIL is a great library for loading and editing images. The problem is that we have found several bugs within the Linux version of this library when loading images. Furtheremore, apparently OpenIl is not in active development.

So we are going to change LOV_Image class and to start using FreeImage that is currently in active development.

New game using Indielib: Sonya


Specialbit Studio have just released the developer edition of Sonya.

Sonya has been developed using a modified version of Indielib.

“Sonya” is casual adventure game, full of exiting quests, puzzles and hidden objects scenes. It is made as a mixture of HOG (Hidden Object Game), FROG (Fragmented Hidden Object Game) and open world adventure quest to make the game more interesting for all audiences. It is a story of two sisters, separated by unknown villains in one moment.

C++ map editor tutorial, it dosent use tiles but pieced images like in Aquaria game


I have spent 40 hours in making this tutorial. I really hope it would be useful for some of you.

“We are going to learn how to create an in game map editor that dosen’t use tiles, but directly backdrop images that you can translate, tint, rotate, scale, etc, in different parallax layers and camera zooming. You can have several tilesets and you can of course to save / load the maps using XML files. This type of editor is used in games like Braid or Aquaria. For this tutorial we are going to use IndieLib C++ 2d engine, because their entity objects are great for having graphical objects which attributes can be modified in real time. And we are going to do it with style, using graphics from lostgarden.com prototyping challenges and Aquaria game.”
