Phoronix: Liberated Pixel Cup - Free Software Game Reviews
The Liberated Pixel Cup has been going on since April as a free-as-in-freedom game development competition being hosted by the Free Software Foundation, Creative Commons, and OpenGameArt. For those more (or equally) interested in the license of the game rather than quality, here are some reviews of the different Liberated Pixel Cup submissions...
I'd appreciate it if the Phoronix post links to this page instead. I'll be updating my reviews to point to it too. It's a lot easier to look at than the wild mess that is the category section of Wordpress
While these games aren't a proper "RPG Maker", they can easily serve as a base for an actual, fullfledged RPG in your language of choice. Some of these games are shells that need expanding, others are complete gems by themselves.
there are alread oss applications which can be considered as oss rpg maker. At least this one: http://flarerpg.org/
Polymorphable is also a good game of this contest and based on the Flare engine.
Laurelia's Polymorpha also happens to be the first game to be made using Flare's Ortographic Engine, as Flare was made to be used for Isometric tilesets.
I haven't yet reviewed that game (Since I'm kinda going in Alphabetic order, unless a game dev kindly asks me to review their game next), but It'll be reviewed this week. I think Polymorphable is one of the shiniest entries in the LPC.
