Balazar III -- Balazar in the rancid skull dungeon !

Balazar III is a dungeon adventure game with multiplayer support. As you explore the dungeon, you'll gain magical objects, experience and powers, but also... curses ! Balazar III is based on the (French) comics "Le guide Balazar du mauvais sorcier" (Balazar's guide to bad sorcerers), hosted on Webamag.

The game comes in two versions (which are network-compatible):

Balazar III is a free software written in Python and available under the GPL v3 licence. Graphics have been designed using free softwares (Blender and Gimp). Balazar II is realized by Jiba from the Nekeme Prod. French association. Help is welcome, in particular for porting and packaging the game on various platforms (I don't have all the devices listed above !), for translating the game, for testing the game (especially the network mode), for informing about the game, or even for improving the website and developing the game.

The current version (0.1) is entirely functional, but includes only a single playable character, a single monster, and not a lot of items, powers and rooms. It is still fun and you can get an idea of the game. The network mode is quite advanced; it is quite powerful and should support a high number of simultaneous players. The amount of data exchanged is limited to the strict minimum (about 300 bytes per second in average). In the future, it is planned to orientate the game toward a massive multiplayer mode.
