|Mark Damon Hughes | Delver|
I've just released Hephaestus, which is a complete freeware CRPG construction kit. Check it out!
Delver is my open-source single-player overhead-view tile-based computer RPG construction kit written in Java.
I don't really plan on working on it further myself, as I'm writing a similar new game instead, but I'd be happy to provide advice and storage space for anyone interested in perpetuating and completing it.
What this means:
You can then distribute your games by just zipping up the images and game file - I'll happily provide links and storage space for your games (and you retain all ownership of your data).
Note that at present, the game file is just a straight text file that you edit with vi or your usual editor, but a GUI-based tool and a binary game file are coming RSN. Until then, read the "gamefile.txt" file in the archive. It's very terse, I know, but it precisely defines what the format is.
I deeply apologize for some of the coding style and techniques in it. The // : comments before every method, in particular, are ugly as sin, but they work better than ctags.
It currently compiles just fine in JDK 1.1. I'd suggest that any future work stick to 1.1 compatibility, just because everyone has it.
Feel free to send mail to me at: <firstname.lastname@example.org> any time you have questions.
