I'm looking forward to a Knytt style game where you can actually swim!   XD

I should mention three things:
* The game will be open source.
* The level layout is designed in notepad. I didn't make an editor. It's quite easy to build a level using Notepad only. Whenever anyone releases the first custom level for it, I'll implement easy support for loading custom levels.
* It's actually a Knytt game, it just doesn't have Knytt in the title. Why it's a Knytt game will only make sense if you played a certain quest in Knytt Underground.

When you say that the game will be open source, do you mean that we'll get the MMF2 source and the exported C++ source? I'd love to look at the code and try to compile it myself. :) If you are going to open source the C++ code, do you have any idea what libraries/dependencies one would need to make it?

Since the engine is the same used in Knytt Underground, it's safe to assume the libraries used are more or less the same, which means:

  • OpenGL (with GLFW?)
  • OpenAL
  • PNG
  • Ogg Vorbis
  • Zlib
  • Freetype (at least for Linux)
  • Probably Python 2
Videogames are for everyone, by everyone

Chowdren (the MMF2 to C++ converter) is open source. I'll make the MMF2 project open source, then you'll need to get Chowdren to convert it.
