Boardwalk is a software tool that lets you create multiplayer board games. Subsequent versions of Boardwalk may add support for games with 2D animation. Boardwalk runs under Linux and will be implemented using Python. Its target platform is the XO Laptop.
Using a built-in scripting language called Treescript, developers can create almost any game imaginable. Subsequent versions of Boardwalk may enable games to be coded in Python instead of Treescript. Non-programmers can create drag-and-drop board games, and programmers can add functionality to these games.
The primary goal of Boardwalk is to enable both programmers and non-programmers to create board games more easily than with a conventional RAD tool such as Visual Basic or Delphi. A secondary goal is to create in Treescript a simple yet powerful scripting language that is even easier for a beginner to master than Python.
