1vs1 Dark Forest "We all die. The goal isn't to live forever. The goal is to create something that will." Chuck Palahniuk


Ancient Beast is a turn based strategy indie game project, played online against other people, featuring a wide variety of creatures to acquire and items to equip onto, putting them to use in order to defeat your opponents.
This project was carefully designed to be easy to learn, fun to play and hard to master. We hope you'll enjoy it!

Ancient Beast is free, open source and developed by Freezing Moon (and community). It uses web languages such as HTML, PHP and JavaScript, so that it's playable from any modern browser without the need of plugins.


The project is developed with the use of free open source cross platform applications and freeware services. Mega comes in very handy when working on the game assets collaboratively, while Github handles the code part and stores the final assets. Art contributions can be made as well in our deviantArt group. There is no centralized forum, but you can use the various Disqus widgets around the website, our Github issue tracker or our FreeGameDev subforum.
Blender is being used for creating most of the assets, such as combat locations, creatures and their own animations, which are rendered into sprites that are usually made into sprite-sheets as well as for other tasks.
Krita, Gimp and MyPaint are useful for concept art, while Inkscape is useful for creating vector ability icons.
