Te Tuhi is a program which turns still pictures into video games. It is free software, licensed under the GPL (version 2 or greater), and written primarily in Python and C.

The software was originally written for an exhibit at Te Tuhi Centre for the Arts in Manukau City, New Zealand. That exhibit borrowed the gallery's name, which the software has inherited. It is almost, but not entirely, appropriate: in Māori, te tuhi means something like "the inscription" but it seems to refer to writing rather more than drawing. Thus the name will probably change sooner or later.


1. Before you start, you'll need Python, GCC, Pygame, the Python Imaging Library, PyYAML, and the Gnu Scientific Library. These might not be available on all operating systems.
2. You can either download a tarball from Sourceforge, or (preferably) get the latest code from the GIT repository. If both of these sound hard or inexplicable then I am sorry: the code is not quite ready for you. The next step is likely to be trickier.
3. Compile the C modules in the directories c, img-c, and perceptron. make && make python-install is probably sufficient in each case.
4. Try ./tetuhi path/to/some/image.jpg. If everything is working, a window should pop up with a game in it.
5. But it probably isn't working, so at this point you should subscribe to the mailing list and ask there. Actually, you should have done that to start with.

What's New in This Release:

A few changes to make it compile on x86-64 systems.
Look for and parse configuration files (see doc/examples).
Support networks without hidden layers (for speed).
Improved support for presentations. No use to most people.
Number of subprocesses defaults to number of available CPUs.
Numerous fixes and tidy-ups.
