FIFE is a cross-platform 2.5D game creation framework written in C++ and Python. Games can be created with a combination of engine, editor tools, game specific scripts, and game content (e.g. maps, graphics, and sounds). The framework is not tied to any type of game (e.g. RTS, RPG), but instead provides a flexible platform for all of them. It supports different isometric views and a pure top-down view. Instead of full 3D flexibility, the engine focuses mainly on using high quality 2D graphics. This puts fewer demands on target platforms and also simplifies the framework and game development.
PARPG is a post-nuclear role playing game. It is inspired in multiple ways by the classics of the golden age of isometric RPGs: first and foremost Fallout (for setting), but also Arcanum (for quality of graphics), as well as Planescape: Torment (for quality of written dialogue). It puts heavy emphasis on choice and consequence, based on the statistics of the character you play, while minimizing the importance of the player's reflexes. Therefore, combat is not fought in real-time but in a turn-based mode. Instead of full 3D flexibility, the game focuses mainly on using high quality isometric 2D graphics. This puts fewer demands on target platforms and also simplifies game development.
