What is Erebus?

Erebus is an Open Source RPG (Role-Playing Game), for PCs, smartphones, tablets and handhelds.

This is currently under development and in its early stages, though already playable with three quests, as well as having randomly generated dungeons to explore.

Features:

  • Classic point-n-click style RPG, with dungeons to explore, enemies to fight, NPCs to talk to, sub-quests to complete, scenery to interact with, weapons, treasure and other items to find.
  • Also supports Rogue-like keyboard controls.
  • Multiple quests (currently three, more will be added as development progresses!)
  • Also provides randomly generated dungeons to explore.
  • Choice of starting characters (currently Barbarian, Elf, Halfling, Ranger, Warrior), each with their own special skills.
  • Start straight into the action - none of this "For your first quest, please find your next door neighbour's pet cat".
  • Vector-based world rather than tile-based - so items/scenery can be placed in any position, or aligned in any direction.
  • 2D animated graphics, with zoom in/out, and lighting effects.
  • Completely free and Open Source - no ads, unlike many free Android apps.
  • User interface optimised to work with mouse, keyboard and/or touchscreen.
  • Cross-platform - available for Windows, Linux, Android and Pandora. Older versions are also available for Nokia Symbian smartphones.

Byte4Byte the best Action RPG there is, off or online.

This sits somewhere in the area between late 90's 2D Realtime RPG's, & "very light" Diablo 1 era arpg.
