Hello,

Does anyone know of any 2D RPG games that are free or open sourced?

I'm looking for examples of how other games of this genre handle various tasks and organization.

Thanks!

I haven't looked at the code, but there's a 2D RPG in the XNA education catalog that seems pretty full featured.

Might I make a suggestion? It would probably be best to code what you can. Then attempt what you don't know and show code and get some peer review.

You could also look at FIFE Engine, and potentially investigate if any of the game projects based on it have source available.

Also, this one's a strategy game rather than an RPG, but Battle for Wesnoth might be worth a look as many of the features -- such as the map drawing -- are potentially similar to those needed for a 2d RPG.


Remember to take anything you see with a grain of salt though -- you're looking at the final resulting code, but you almost certainly won't have access to the logic behind the choice of that particular implementation -- you won't know whether a particular technique was chosen because it is the best idea, because it suits some special and unusual need of the particular project, because it used to be a good choice for reasons that no longer apply, or even simply because the developer was ignorant of better options.


Hope that's helpful, and good luck! Posted Image

Check my homepage . I developed a 2d RPG Engine (inspired by JRPEGS of the SNES area) incl. level editor and small dialog editor + turn based combat system (random encounter). You can find the source on my blog. (link is in signature)

I open sourced my C++/iOS OpenGL 2D RPG engine :-)
