Runesword 2 Becomes Open Source

April 20th, 2004 by Crusader

From a reader:

DevMaster reports: CrossCut Games has released the source code and a fully unlocked playable version of RuneSword 2, a Windows based “CRPG designed to appeal to ‘pen and paper’ role-players. The game comes with two full-length adventures, a number of smaller adventures, and a completely flexible construction set.” The project can be found on SourceForge at It appears to be written in VisualBasic. Time for a C port? ;)

    It appears by the looks of the screenshot that this games is very low res… I scaled it to fullscreen, but damn even doom looked better! I don’t think this game is really that good.

    Not too bad..
    it’s main problem will be getting permission from the “lead miniature” house.. you know coloring the catalog of RalPartha (IIRC) will not make them happy.

    It was Open Sourced a while back- whatever happened to the development work that was planned to make it work with Free Pascal and SDL so it was truely cross-platform?
