"The Game" is a project designed to simplify the process of producing any high-quality cross-platform 2D or 3D graphical computer game. The hope is that any game can be produced simply by changing a few settings and pressing a "compile" button. The project has three "deliverables": a game engine library to abstract across the set of all possible computer games (applying object-oriented design methods to the general problem in such a way as to be usable in specific instances); a graphical interface for easy game design (an exercise in human interface design); and a gaming package with a lot of shiny games to play.
Avadan is a role-playing game situated in space. The player travels from planet to planet in order to find the mystical oracles. The player is placed in nethack-style dungeons. The whole game is rogue-like, but with the extension of space travels. The dungeons are shown with tile graphics, and space looks a bit better. On space stations, the player can talk to NPCs, get quests, and trade artifacts found in the dungeons.
