GNU FreeDink is a humourous 2D adventure/action game.

It's a portable and improved version of the Dink Smallwood game which
was released as Free Software by its author Seth A. Robinson.

FreeDink can run the original game as well as its extensions called
Dink Modules or D-Mods for short.

FreeDink also comes with a game editor called FreeDinkedit, so you can
create your own world!

This new version v1.08.20090918 includes, among others:

- New logging system

- New architecture: PSP (playstation portable)

- Dink doesn't crash on very long lines in dink.ini or DinkC scripts

- Add support for contextual translations

- Toggle fullscreen works on more platforms (not just X11)

- NSIS (NullSoft Install System) script to generate a complete ms woe
  installer (with FreeDink, DFArc and freedink-data); it also can
  cross-compile from GNU/Linux.

It is worth noting that the PSP, a widespread game console, suffers
from what we call tivoization: the firmware refuses to load any
executable that was not signed by Sony.  Playing other executables
("homebrews") requires unlocking the firmware using a number of
tricks described at http://www.freedink.org/doc/psp/ .

This is quite a problem, and increasingly difficult to bypass.

DFArc is a graphical game front-end to play and manage D-Mods.
It was never properly announced on this list :)

Other FreeDink components include:

- freedink-data: game data released this year under the free zlib
  license (except for 3rd-party sounds) + some free replacements for
  the sounds

- Windinkedit: alternative windowed editor
  (C+Python+Gtk port, currently in hiatus)

FreeDink is packaged in several distributions including Debian,
Fedora, ArchLinux, OpenSUSE and FreeBSD, making it easy to install all
the related packages at once.

How to help:

- Provide more free replacements for the sounds

- Translate the game in your language (with the Translation Project):
