Designing games with free/libre softwares

Founded in 2018, Armaludis is a non-profit organization whose goal is to design, produce and publish free/libre games using only free/libre software.

Chaos 2D6
Chaos 2D6 Duel Edition, a 2 player game available as a free PDF version (published under Creative Commons BY-SA license) or as a Limited Edition (Full Game Box Set).

Dragon's Breath
Dragon's Breath - Decorum has cultural limits but they're not the same everywhere - the proof with this game which will make you reach the Supreme Rank using unconventional weapon :P

Annexion
Annexion - Annex and defend lifeless celestial bodies full of resources on behalf of mega-companies. They then hasten to sell you what they do with these resources, all while massively polluting your environment. You ask for more, but it's normal: the semi-autonomous combat armor you are given is indestructible and over-armed... It's not your fault, pollution makes you stupid and you too are annexed...

Armaludis is looking for a graphic designer(s) to join the creation of different elements of the game, mainly planetary environments and combat armor. Please contact us on this page.

Gunter
Gunter - The 2 companions Gunter and Bertrand have a great time perverting their new European "friends" and others... ouch... game for adults :O

Chaos 2D6: a game of twists and turns

Card combat game

Chaos 2D6

Fun and quick to learn, Chaos 2D6 Duel Edition is a game for everyone, available in Free/libre Version or Limited Edition Box Set.

The game opposes 2 players each playing a character among 12 types of fighters whose goal is to defeat the opponent. Once the first victory is achieved, win 5 more fights with the same character to make a Titan, immortal fighter who can in turn join the Pantheon of Eternals.

Some dice throws make randomly draw Chaos, powerful cards that add or remove powers... Duels with guaranteed twists! The games can be very fast, perfect for a friendly moment over a drink, with the family or in a bar! Thanks to its small size (12.2 x 9.2 x 3.5 cm), Chaos 2D6 fits in your pocket, handy to accompany you anywhere.

Like all our creations, Chaos 2D6 was created with free software (list in the rule book). We commit ourselves to give a percentage of the sales of the Limited Duel Edition Box Set, in the form of donations or purchases, to the developers of these softwares.

Sweksys

First game system published by Armaludis

Sweksys is a simple game system based on the use of 6-sided dice. It was originally designed for Chaos 2D6 but, given its modularity, which makes it a practical tool for developing various types of games (whether combat games or more broadly board games), it seemed appropriate to adapt and share it. It is available under a Creative Commons BY-SA license - an english version will be available sometime soon, contact us if you wish to collaborate and help with the translation.

Sweksys is intended for the design of games opposing several players. It includes a method of drawing characters that are grouped into categories and have features or traits (2 by default, but there can be only one or as many as needed). Using dice rolls, those features are used to determine the score of each player's character.

The common element for categorization and number of characters is the ratio to the number 6. This ratio can also be applied to peripheral elements that can be added to Sweksys-based games (cards, miniatures, etc.).
