Hello, I've been apart of an indie game in it's early stages. Created by HackThePanda, here are words from him of what this game is.
Elephant in the room: It looks like Minecraft, congrats.
While your powers of observation serve you well I set out to make Forest Sword much more than a building game.
Technically speaking, Forest Sword isn't a game. It's an engine. An engine that can be added onto and modded with no coding at all. Forest Sword was built around modability, in a way very few game engines are today. Aside from being completely open source and free, it cuts out all of the fluff and lets you add in content with only the parameters you need. Why bother messing with Java variables and learning the engine structure when all you want is to quickly make a sword? And because all of the data files are handled outside of the JAR, no zipping/unzipping is required to edit your content. The expandability of a block genre game has never been greater and I hope you get involved
Currently Forest Sword is in development, but soon a beta version will be made available for people to start testing and releasing content with. I will update the forums with development news as I progress, and infrequently distribute builds with new features and bug fixes.
Since this is a little outdated, the very early beta is now ready for development, it has a lot of potential, so I hope you all will see it!
Since this is an engine, it is highly modifiable so, to test it's capabilities we are creating an RPG game, called "Aequor." It will hopefully show many of it's possibilities and set examples for future users of the engine.
There is much more information from the creator yourself, and if you want to check it out you can DL the beta at teamlucidic.com
We highly encourage you to get involved with this project, so if you are interested, we have a forums for discussion and questions on the engine at forums.teamlucidic.com
If you want to see a video showing off some of the things there are in the game right now, and what will be added in the future, you can go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoCulMqoS8U
We hope you can enjoy our work in progress and get active in this community!
Update 1: I forgot to add something very important with the modding, this is a guide made to help people wanting to create new things on Forest Sword. http://forums.teamlucidic.com/t27-item-loading
