Flare (Free/Libre Action Roleplaying Engine) is a simple,
open source, single-player 2D-isometric action RPG engine. Flare is not
a reimplementation of an existing game or engine. Rather than building
a very abstract, robust game engine, the goal of this project is to
build several real games and harvest an engine from the common,
reusable code. The first game, in progress, is a fantasy dungeon crawl.
Included is a demo game featuring dark atmosphere and
fast-paced combat. Flare uses simple file formats (INI style config
files) for most of the game data, allowing anyone to easily modify game
contents. Open formats are preferred (png, ogg). The game code is C++.
