This project is not part of the GNU Project.

The aim of Adonthell is the creation of a 2D, graphical, single player role playing game and the required engine.

Main emphasis of the game lies on good gameplay rather than on realism; it will be a well-balanced mixture of fast-paced realtime combat, head-cracking puzzle elements and extensive dialogues.

The engine core is written in C++, but highly customizable through the embedded Python interpreter. Engine and game data are strictly separated to allow the creation of completely different RPGs with the same engine.

While we work on completing the engine, we will release fully playable demo games from time to time, that make use of the available engine functionality.

Details (job description, contact ...):

The Adonthell project is an effort to make a free graphical role playing game, graphically similar to the good old Super NES RPGs, but taking advantage of new computers' processing power to give the player an increased range of freedom.

The Adonthell team includes programmers as well as various artists (gfx artists, musicians, writers). Although the current team has been successfully going for about two years, we'd like to enlarge it with a few extra artists, as the objectives have been extended and as a consequence the amount of work too. We are looking for talented bitmap artists to work on the various graphical elements of the game (objects, characters, cutscenes elements, user interface elements, etc.).

Working on Adonthell means being part of an open team composed of various people with different talents - while being totally open, our way to work is much like professionals', with the exception that you'll have freedom in your work. Every single detail is discussed on our mailing lists, and isn't implemented until an agreement has been reached. This means you could bring your artistic touch to the whole game.

Developping Adonthell will put you in contact with experienced gfx artists who are used to computer game graphics and will guide you during your first steps. It is a unique experience of collaborative and friendly teamwork from which anyone could learn a lot.
