Visionaire Studio is a cross-platform program package and authoring system for creating 2D graphics adventures .


Visionaire is one of the rather unspecific engines that are supposed to make many different variants of adventure games possible. This applies above all to the control of the game and the design of the plot and events in the game. One can Visionaire even without programming knowledge of the scripting language Lua use for game development, which limits flexibility. As of version 3, Lua is supported as a full script language, supplemented by a fixed catalog of combinable action parts.

  • Support of the graphic interfaces OpenGL and OpenGL ES
  • Support of the audio interface OpenAL
  • Support for the Lua scripting language
  • Support of numerous video formats by using the FFmpeg library
  • Multilingual user interface in: German, English, French, Dutch, Spanish and Italian

Operating systems

  • Development environment (editor): Microsoft Windows XP and Mac OS X
  • Ready-made adventures (player): Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and Android

Native support for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS and Android is included from version 4.0.
