The Penguin Machine

The Penguin machine version 0.0.4 is now available here. The game is based on "The incredible machine" created by Sierra. The goal of the game is to place different parts on the screen such as balloons, balls, mice, etc on the screen and create a machine.

When the machine is finally set in motion the goal is achieved. The Penquin Machine is still in early development and only includes the following features so far:
  1. Only two parts available (bowling ball and bar).
  2. Physics only in place for collisions rectangles and circles.
  3. The only stable target is SVGALib (SDL support is broken).
  4. Only keyboard input is handled (no mouse handling).
If you are interested in helping with the development check out The Penguin Machine's home page, mention of help wanted is on there http://tpm.seul.org/
