CACK (Crap Adventure Construction Kit)

CACK is (or will be) a constuction kit for crap little adventure games. Think Dizzy style gameplay (pick up object, use object etc) with Zelda style top down view. Beta 2 is just a release of the player (editor hasn't been started yet), but you can still use it to create games if you don't mind doing a bit of manual editing of xml and writing map data. Included in the zip are gp2x and windows binaries, and full source for building on linux.

04/09/07 Stickman chapter 1 is available from the games page.

03/06/07 Beta 2 released.

01/05/07 Work is progressing on beta 2 of the player. Editor not started yet.
