The Dink Network


This is the original Dink game, meant to be distributed as part of FreeDink.

In particular:
- the graphics and story are under the free zlib license
- most of the sounds and music were not owned by RTsoft and are being replaced

This means that the game respects the principles of Free Software and can be safely included in GNU/Linux and *BSD distributions.

Help is needed to create or find more sound replacements, please see

In addition, some improvements were made:
- the game is translated in French and Dutch (more in the way)
- a game freeze was fixed for "darklank dink"

Note: version 20090706 means 2009 (year) 07 (july) 06 (6th)
Released:October 22nd, 2011
File Size:26.03 MB
Release Notes:Ofir and Joshua contributed 5 new sounds, to replace non-free/non-redistributable music from the original Dink game. And 4 of them are original, completely new songs - make exclusively for GNU FreeDink!

- 7.mid: Darklands (Joshua O'Leary)
- 12.mid: inside GoodHearth castle (Joshua O'Leary)
- 18.mid: End Boss (Joshua O'Leary)
- 5.ogg: Tavern/bar in Terris (Ofir Mo)
- 13.ogg: Church (Johann Pachelbel's Canon, MIDI by Ofir Mo)

(The song can be edited using the RoseGarden project files present in the freedink-data source package.)

Bas Wijnen and Juan Valencia Escalante also improved the Dutch and Spanish translations respectively.

And there's also a game bugfix: when you didn't have a free inventory slot and tried to buy a bow in Kernsin, the game froze. This is now fixed. Thanks to Bas Wijnen for the report.
