Final Fantasy 6 and many of those after it come to mind. 6 in particular seemed very steampunk.

There are a number of RPGs that would likely run on a laptop created by Richard Gariott. They aren't free but they are cheap and quality.

My favorite is the Avernum series.

Im 16 and I personally like the simpler kind of games. My family and I particularly love board games (and not monopoly or trouble). We own a variety of rare ones, including a board game called Battle Masters which (I believe) is fairly expensive to obtain and is a lot like Wesnoth. Some of my favori...

I have to agree with you ultimatum that I am also one of those ADD players that will put down $50 for a game that I play for one week then get bored with. Wesnoth, on the other hand, happens to be free and I'm pretty much hooked on it.

I will agree with you that no game is perfectly balanced. But this game is balanced to the extent that it will never have a significant outcome when two or more people are playing. As long as both know what they are doing, the game is going to be even and it will ultimately come down to who played t...

The way I see it, if beginners get used to using the overpowered version of the Drakes, then they are going to have a harder time adjusting the Default Era Drakes. I believe this would be much harder than simply learning the Default Era Drakes. As for me, I wasn't too good with the Drakes but I just...

It could indeed be actual units that are moving. But I was more thinking stationary locations on the map in which it would be smart to protect or attack. You wouldn't just be sending out all out assaults on people because there would actually be a reason to leave some units behind to defend. It woul...

I have not tried the game and I'm not sure if this is possible (I have very little grasp of programming), but I think for the economy it would be cool to have some sort of supply line system. Whereas you could have a major supply line and then lose it all because some enemy attacked a link in it. Ag...

As for default era, I'm going to go with lieutenant.

But if it was AoH, I would have to go with the Troll Warrior. His blade and pierce resistance, regeneration, and awesome hammer make him unstoppable.

113. You actually know what each of the points on these threads are talking about.

question about shading

Ive been working on shading and im not sure about this particular case. If it is an orb (shiny) being hit by light from a particular direction, should I have or not have the bright highlight around the edge of the orb. It seems to me that the our eyes would interpret there to be light around the orb...

Im completely new to this...

Ive always thought that sprite animating would be something to get into so I decided to start with wesnoth which a favorite game of mine. This is after I messed around a bit and is basically a skin-job with the added banner.
