The Freedroid RPG is an extension/modification of the classical Freedroid engine into an RPG. The main differences to the classical version are as follows:

The Tux is the main character of the rpg.
The game uses isometric viewpoint and animated pre-rendered 3d character models for all characters inside the game.
Dialogs and chatting with friendly droids and humans: Multiple-choice menus and voice samples (with subtitles for those without sound).
There is an item and inventory system that is modeled after some popular standards of the industry
An automap feature was added. (this is currently a bit unmaintained since part of the code needs to be re-written for proper OpenGL support in the automap display)
Saving and loading of games.
Shops to trade things and skills to learn.
Controls are different: Mouse is the input method of choice.
This is a graphically intense game. Therefore the archive size is comparably *huge* and not suitable for modem downloads with a dialup connection.

What's New in This Release:
droid 516 is now animated
droid 139 highlight bug fixed
new plasma bullets graphics
new desk lamp graphics
when identifying an item in shop the information is shown directly in item description
dialog fixes: darwin, skippy, benjamin, mrs stone
more obstacle descriptions
inventory fixes: better grid, and object aligning

droid parts are dropped only once each ten bots killed (but they are worth 10 times more)
cosmetic fixes to HUD
fixed pause bug
fixed compiling in freeBSD with the help of Alejandro Pulver
new version number added here and there
