After a lot of months of work, i have been able of polish my CRPG game engine (PORTALEngine) in order to make something playable. Today i have released a new version of my engine with a little alpha playable tech demo (not as astonishing as the first demos of Era, but well, i'm proud of what i have done ;) ).
For me, this is very important, because I have been programming 2D CRPG's since eight years ago (starting in text mode), and finally i have been able to create something who is near my initial dreams.
Let's move onto the subject. The engine, PORTALEngine, is a CRPG Engine with a japanese look&feel, but internally is capable to manage complex situations like scheduling, task partition (NPC's slaving other NPC's), and others. It's basic features are:
- 2D graphics, with variable size.
- Multiples cameras.
- Scriptable entities.
- Battle in real-time with pause.
- Scheduling, slaving,...
- Coded in Pascal and JEDI-SDL, with sources in spanish (sorry guys ;) ).
- Windows and Linux (ey, it's SDL ;) ).
- And a lot of bugs :P
The problem with this engine is that I have been doing it with a "generic" CRPG in mind, but now I have realized that if I want to end it, I must center in the design of the game I want to do. At least, I think I am in the right way.
The engine+"mini-game" can be obtained at
Hope some comments, and also hope you people like it!!!

New version of this (WIP) CRPG engine. Now, the engine can be compiled using FreePascal, and there is a Linux version.
