Eos -- Dawn of Light

Eos -- Dawn of Light - 0.2

Casey Duncan (cduncan)



A space adventure game with elements of arcade and strategy. Can you command your fleet against your greatest enemy?


Note: It's been a while since the last release and there have been a ton of great improvements since then. Visit the subversion repository page for more info until I make time to do another release. We try hard to ensure that the game is playable in with every check in.

Welcome to the third prevew release of Eos! The game has made great strides since the last release and it looks like the basic game infrastructure is now complete.

  • Basic ship selection frontend interface
  • Sprite zooming perspective effect adds depth and increases your field of view
  • Implemented ship energy model, energy and health bars are displayed below ships when damaged
  • Smoke particle effects when ship is damaged. Ship systems repair themselves over time
  • More detailed background graphics including an improved starfield, nebulas and floating particle effects
  • Improved quality of ship sprites
  • The Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars were added
  • Ambient soundtracks for the Naree and Rone
  • Basic camera with acceleration lag and panning effects
  • Physics speed is now independent of frame rate
  • Frame rate now goes as fast as your machine can draw, resulting in much smoother animation
  • The graphics are now resolution-independent
  • Code optimizations result in much better performance, especially on slower machines (e.g., powerpc macs)

Thanks go out to Dave LeCompte for his help with creating the windows package!

If everything's installed properly (see INSTALL), you can just cd into the directory and run (assuming python is on your PATH):

Try commenting out (or removing) that line, you don't need memcache for single-player mode (which is the default). I've checked in a change so that memcache is only imported if you are trying to join a multiplayer game. We're still working out the kinks in multiplayer anyhow.

FWIW, if you are running Eos from source, I would highly recommend doing so from an svn checkout anyhow (there are instructions on sourceforge). We're making changes almost everyday, and there have already been several enhancements since the release. We always do our best to make sure the game works with every checkin, plus you get the latest and greatest.
