Dungeon Master - Open Edition

[Description] [Licensing] [Screenshots] [Platforms] [Requirements] [News] [Project detail] [Download] [Contacts]


DMOE (formerly DMLE, Linux Edition) is a free (read: opensource) SDL implementation of the classic game Dungeon Master from FTL/Interplay.
The initial target platform is GNU/Linux, but other (POSIX preferred) platforms supported by SDL will be supported too, as well as possible. It will attempt to reproduce (as far as possible) the look and feel of the former Dungeon Master version (currently the Atari one, but I'm also considering other versions). Please note that it's under heavy development, only some parts of the engine are working, so the _game_ itself doesn't exist yet, the project is only at an embryonic stage (see project details/downloads).


The engine is under GPL, all data (gfx, sfx) must be extracted from an original Dungeon Master you must own. I'm working on an extraction procedure so that people can use the original data and respect the license considerations. A free data set (including gfx and sfx) *might* be implemented, but this is a huge work, not scheduled yet.
