Introducing FreedroidRPG, a great FOSS isometric RPG

The talk introduces the game FreedroidRPG, insisting on it being mature and fully playable. We will see what features FreedroidRPG provides, present a few screenshots, explain our interest in having an immersive ambience through dialogs, music and graphics, and mention the unusual history of the game (it started off as a 2D arcade game before evolving into a full featured RPG similar to Diablo). We will explain where we need help from the community. A demo will not be possible in the timeframe of a lightning talk, but a little video may be played.

FreedroidRPG is a mature open source sci-fi isometric role playing game. It strives at providing an immersive ambience backed by refined graphics and music tracks. Besides the hack'n'slash action phases, dialogs with dozens of NPCs take care of storytelling. The player can fight with melee or ranged weapons, take control of his enemies by hacking, and remotely execute code on enemy robots.
