Hi

on the last months I was working on a top-down tile-based-movement rpg in python(+pygames), only to discover that I have no Idea of how to create an engine from scratch
I managed to make something but it isn't good, so i decided to using an engine, mi first choice went to Torque 2d, but sadly i do not have tho money to pay the licence, there are some good free alternative?

Yes, sorry, Lua. Does it fit what you're looking for?

Just asking, I'll give it a try anyway
even if I was searching for something maybe more "graphical-oriented" (if that makes some sense)

BYOND may be what you're after. (http://www.byond.com/)

It's an engine geared around making 2D online tile-based RPGs easily (though it has been used to create all sorts of games).

It handles the tile-based mechanics and all the netcode - meaning you just have to build your world.

The language it uses is intuitive and there's a great community for code problems.
