Interactivity and Dialogue Demo -Although we've had some demo game engines before, none of them were truly playable.

We are now the official maintainers of UtumnoYes, we have always been the maintainers of PROJECT Utumno, but now we also maintain the code for the old isometric roguelike game Utumno by Matt Craighead. Although M.C. Utumno is not the same as Project Utumno, we have decided to include it for several reasons:
1.) Although it was never finished, it is a fun game and worth completing.
2.) M.C. Utumno is similar in many ways to what we have in mind for Project Utumno.
3.) We get a lot of fans asking us where they can download the old Utumno game.
For the sake of history and as a tribute, we have restored and updated Matt Craighead's original Utumno site (previously http://web.mit.edu/craighea/www/utumno/) The archive site can be visited at http://utumno.medicinestorm.com/archive/. The latest version of the game can be found in the Downloads section of the Archive site.

Downloads Section UpdatesThe Derived Tiles section has been removed since the Map Editor's new QuickTiles make Derived Tiles obsolete.
A Mini-Avatars section has been added to the Downloads area so Developers and Creators can show off their mini character avatars crated with the Character Avatar Demo.
The tables that display all the screenshots, all the map files, etc. now have a small [-] symbol at the top of the table so you can close the table again after opening it. Check it out. All items in these tables now display the most recent items first by default.
