Flare is an open source, 2D action RPG licensed under the GPL3 license. Its game play can be likened to the games in the Diablo series.

About

Flare is a single-player 2D action RPG with fast-paced action and a dark fantasy style. It is built on the FLARE engine (Free/Libre Action Roleplaying Engine); a simple engine, written in C++ and SDL 2, built to handle only single-player 2D action RPGs. The game is not a reimplementation of an existing game or engine. It is a tribute to and exploration of the action RPG genre.

The goal of the Flare project is to build several real games and harvest an engine from a common, resusuable code base.
