GNU FreeDink – a portable version of the game engine, which runs the original game as well as its D-Mods, with close compatibility, under multiple platforms.

FreeDink is a fork off Dink Smallwood, and is developed under the GNU Project umbrella, works on replacing the last proprietary sounds to make the game completely Free software.

GNU FreeDink started between the official Dink Smallwood 1.07 and 1.08 and aims at improving the game engine to target new platforms and features. The project is now mature and widely available.

FreeDink runs the original game as well as its D-Mods, with close compatibility, under new platforms.
On the technical level, the internals of the engines experienced a clean-up to allow for portability and later improvements. This mainly implied using free and portable replacements for the game libraries, such as Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL), instead of the proprietary and Windows-specific one that the game original used. GNU FreeDink is also where the internals of the engines experience a clean-up to allow for later improvements.

GNU FreeDink is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions.
