A mini library for block-based games

Project description

DotBox is a block-based game mini library. It greatly limits what is plausible.

DotBox is free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 3 (or any later version). The author of DotBox is Niels Serup, contactable at ns@metanohi.org. This is version 0.1.0 of the program.

Any libraries used by DotBox are GPL-compatible. Any data used by the examples included in this package is as free as DotBox itself.

Installing

Way #1

Just run this (requires that you have python-setuptools installed):

Example games

Instead of the lacking documentation, you can also take a look at the example games in the examples directory of this package. These games are playable.

Usable colors

DotBox uses a palette of 256 colors. The first 216 are the so-called “web-safe” colors (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web-safe_color#Color_table ), while the remaining 40 are grayscale.

Developing

DotBox is written in Python and uses Git for branches. To get the latest branch, get it from gitorious.org like this:

\$ git clone git://gitorious.org/dotbox/dotbox.git
