freedroidrpg — a futuristic immersive RPG about fighting bots


[-f | -fullscreen | w | -window ] [-r | -resolution ] [-q | -nosound ] [-n | -no_open_gl ]


FreedroidRPG tells the story of a world destroyed by a conflict between robots and their human masters. Play as Tux in a quest to save the world from the murderous rebel bots who know no mercy. You get to choose which path you wish to follow, and freedom of choice is everywhere in the game.

FreedroidRPG features a real time combat system with melee and ranged weapons, fairly similar to the proprietary game Diablo. There is an innovative system of programs that can be run in order to take control of enemy robots, alter their behavior, or improve one's characteristics. You can use over 150 different kinds of items and fight countless enemies on your way to your destiny. An advanced dialog system provides story background and immersive role playing situations.


Please see the README or the tutorial in the game for more details.


Periodically we release updated versions of FreedroidRPG with expanded plot, requested features, and other improvements. Please check the Lk FreedroidRPG Homepage for the most updated versions of the game.
