Avencast: Rise of the Mage DevKit for PC

Here is the official Avencast : Rise of the Mage devkit for the PC version (1.04).

 

July 25, 2008

Please download it here.

 

The Avencast Development Kit contains the complete set of tools required to modify or add new game content to Avencast – Rise of the Mage, such as:
• The level editor
• The graphics import and export tools
• Visual effects editor
• All the scripting and configuration files in an unencrypted version, so you can modify:
o Quests
o Monster behaviour and attributes
o The hero’s skills and attributes
o Items, equipment
o …every other game content

Furthermore the complete reference documentation of all Avencast engine commands and parameters is provided together with several tutorials explaining step by step how to use the level editor and modify game content.

Due to the complex nature of Action RPG’s the Avencast Dev Kit addresses primarily enthusiastic gamers or hobby game designers with basic knowledge of game development and/or programming. Yet, the completeness of tools theoretically opens up the possibility to develop an entirely new game.
