A downloadable game for Linux

'Enigma in the Wine Cellar' is an exploration puzzle game. Activate mechanisms, climb stairs and ladders, wade through water, scramble over ceiling handbars and catwalks to explore underground passages and rooms in search of hidden items. Be wary of confusion traps and dead-end rooms. The game is played from a first person point-of-view, and contains three-dimensional multi-level rooms. Seven game maps are included, which vary in complexity. Released: November 24, 2016.

This game was ported to the Linux OS from the Palm OS and Nokia Symbian OS versions. OpenGL (Mesa 3-D graphics library) is used for image rendering within a custom GTK+ widget. The 3D image meshes were created with Blender 2.76b, and exported as Stanford PLY v1.0 files. The sound effects were created using Audacity 2.1.2, and are played using the Libcanberra sound library. The custom game engine was written in C++ using Anjuta 3.18.2 IDE, with GTK+ 3.18 for the user interface.
