Since I understand your wishes to review our source code, I've attached our latest, largely nonfunctional, tarball of rather buggy stubs. Unfortunately, the rewrite into C is in an early stage so this is all we have.

Also, INSTALL, README, AUTHORS and ChangeLog need work once we have some content to put in there.

Other than that, I hope you shall encounter no issues, legal or otherwise, during your review of our project.

Our project, Role Playing Game Engine, RPGE for short, will be an engine for 2-dimensional graphical role playing games. Its primary aim is to make the engine as generic as possible, using a scripting language to extend, control, change and regulate its behavior.

Secondarily, we intend to support as many platforms as possible, even though I personally only test on GNU/Linux. We do this by using exclusively free software dependencies, like Simple DirectMedia Layer for graphics, control etc and either Guile or Python (the debate's still ongoing) as our scripting language.

On the nitty-gritty details side, RPGE uses pretty much sprite-based graphics in a simple tile grid and it will probably support sprite animation internally, using a specific format for its sprites.

Until recently, RPGE was implemented in C++ using libsdl and having undergone several scripting language experiments, of which using libguile was the most succesful. However, we have decided to rewrite RPGE from the ground up in C, which is why we have no code to show right now.

Other Software Required:

Simple DirectMediaLayer (libsdl) http://www.libsdl.org
Guile (libguile) http://www.gnu.org/software/guile
SDL_image (libsdl_image) http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_image/
SDL_ttf (libsdl_ttf)     http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_ttf/
