Author's Description: The Anestor RPG engine is still in very early stages of development. It currently features a two layered scrolling map, has the ability to display objects like trees/statues or items and the characters can equip items.
12-14-2001: Fixed download links and updated site link. Also, this is a slightly newer version with shadow support. But it's still very outdated and using Allegro 3.9.33. We hope to have a recent version (with scripting and decent shadow) available soon.
03-03-2002: We decided that the RPG should be more tile-based (no per-pixel walking). This should simplify collision and pathfinding. We also decided that the RPG should be in isometric perspective. Because of these plans we are now back to design status.
08-24-2002: Anestor RPG engine had been put on hold long ago and we're working on the Moonlight RPG engine now, which we started from the ground up. We're making smaller games with the Moonlight engine now, but eventually we'll want to realize Anestor with it.
We are trying to make the engine very independent of the game itself, and to make it easy for new levels/adventures to be created. This is done by programming an easy to use level editor called RPG Edit (included in the download) and we will be scripting objects, quests, etc. (currently using SeeR).
Overall Rating: 5.7
