What is this?
Fallarium is an effort to port Damian Yerrick's Tetanus On Drugs(TM) to Allegro 5 and allow it to run on modern computers. TOD is a Tetris-like game with added visual effects commonly associated with hallucinogens.
I played a lot of Tetanus on Drugs(TM) when I was younger, mainly the GBA port. I recently rediscovered my love for it and want to make it available to users of modern computers and those without GBA flashcarts. The original version of the game (non-GBA) was written over 10 years ago for computers much less powerful. After getting the game to compile with all the new Allegro 5 features, etc. I want to begin turning it into a more visually appetizing game.
How do I use it?
You can't yet. It doesn't compile. I'm not done updating the Allegro 4 (and in some cases Allegro 3) functions and such to Allegro 5. A lot changed between A4 and A5 so there's a lot to do.
- Update A4 functions and constructs to A5.
- Replace A4 GUI with something more modern that works with A5.
- Bring in gameplay elements from LOCKJAW: The Overdose (GBA version of TOD)
- Update graphics, effects, sound, etc.
- Take advantage of modern 3D hardware.
What are the requirements?
Literally any computer running GNU/Linux, Windows, or even Mac OS X that was made in the last fifteen years.
For future proofing, though, make sure you've got a graphics card that supports OpenGL 2.0.
Where/How can I use this?
The program is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3.
If for some reason, you have yet to memorize the GPL, take your lawyer out for a nice lunch and see LICENSE for more details.
How can I help?
- Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you know Allegro well, starting fixing stuff.
- Fork it, do a pull request and if I like your changes, I'll merge 'em.
