Flexible Isometric Free Engine (FIFE) is a multi-platform isometric game engine written in C++. It comes with Python bindings allowing users to create games using Python as well as C++. The engine is extendable and enables you to add any feature you can imagine to your project.

It's a very flexible game creation framework and not tied to any genre, but geared towards an RTS or RPG using an isometric or top-down view style.
