  Description     : A portable version of the Dink Smallwood game engine.

Dink Smallwood is an adventure/role-playing game, similar to Zelda, made
by RTsoft. Besides twisted humour, it includes the actual game editor,
allowing players to create hundreds of new adventures called Dink
Modules or D-Mods for short. The Dink Network hosts a copy of almost all
of them.

In 2003, Seth A. Robinson from RTsoft released the source code of the
game engine, at version 1.07, under a free software license.


Currently parts of the official data for this package are still under
the control of RTSoft, although this is hoped to be resolved at some
point. Until this point either this package will be placed in contrib
with the data in non-free, or I shall create some simple data files
myself under a free license, and not depend on the non-free data at all.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
