Skookum is, without question, the most powerful and efficient scripting language I’ve used for creating quests in games.
Using Skookum, I could finish the scripting component of a mission in as little as a quarter of the time as any other project that used Lua, Bioware’s Neverwinter Script or any visual language like Kismet [now “Blueprints” in Unreal Engine 4].
Games Powered with SkookumScriptUnited Front Games used SkookumScript to develop the open world game Sleeping Dogs and all its downloadable content (DLC) which was published by Square Enix on Microsoft Windows (online via Steam), Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3 and Cloud OnLive. It was followed up with Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition on Microsoft Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4
The next big release is Triad Wars – set in the same world as Sleeping Dogs – it is a massively multiplayer open-world action adventure on Microsoft Windows. It has entered closed Beta as of October 23, 2014 and is expected to be released in early 2015.
