Flare (Free/Libre Action Roleplaying Engine) is a simple single-player Action RPG engine. Instead of being a general engine that handles many game types, this focused engine is small and easy to mod.
Included is a demo game featuring dark atmosphere and fast-paced combat.
The code is GPL and the art is CC-BY-SA.
- Easy to mod with plain text files
- Basic translation support
- CC-BY-SA licensed core assets to create new campaigns
I'm reviewing the game aspect of this as I didn't really mess around with the actual engine. This looks and feels as professional as Diablo II did at launch. The fact that it's free is baffling.
Downloaded this from my distro's repo and I am loving it! I would like to see keyboard configuration settings in a future release. (Mind you, my version might be older than the one provided on the home page.)
Nice work on this project. Gameplay is simple enough to start and play right away. Mod feature will be huge aspect of success for this. Can't wait to see next release.
I'm Hooked! Works great on MacPro3,1 with OS X 10.6.8 and I love this game!
