The Legend of Edgar 1.12

The Legend of Edgar is a 2D platform game with a persistent world. When Edgar’s father fails to return home after venturing out one dark and stormy night, Edgar fears the worst: he has been captured by the evil sorcerer who lives in a fortress beyond the forbidden swamp. In The Legend of Edgar, you take on the role of Edgar as he ventures across the world, battling fearsome creatures and solving puzzles while trying to find and rescue his father.

Release Notes: A sound effect was added for the lifts. All music is now in Ogg format. A problem with the moveable lift in the library was fixed. The time remaining when Edgar is a Slime now appears above Edgar. A minor problem with the dialogue when Edgar is talking to Evil Edgar was fixed. Grimlore’s fists now take damage from projectiles.

VMS Empire 1.10

VMS Empire is a simulation of a full-scale war between two emperors, the computer and you. Naturally, there is only room for one, so the object of the game is to destroy the other. The computer plays by the same rules that you do. This game was ancestral to all later expand/explore/exploit/exterminate games, including Civilization and Master of Orion.

Release Notes: This release fixes a core dump when a satellite bounced off the world’s edge, and adds full ANSIfication of function prototypes (which fixes the sat bug, as the code appears to have been tickling some obscure bug in the compilation of function calls with K&R-style prototypes).
