Hi, I'm also late to the party. I wanted to say thank you Beuc for maintaining this for so long! This game was one of the few PC titles I played constantly as a teenager. It was a period in my life where I kind of fell out of console games and only used the free and open source games that were in the Ubuntu repositories -- I was pretty lonely at the time and this game was one of only a few that kept me from feeling that too harshly.

It's also one of the first times I volunteered in the free software community. I'm the person who coded the current version of gnu.org/s/freedink back in 2012! (Under the name "Luiji".)

I'm sorry to see FreeDink go unmaintained, but I'm glad you're moving on at the same time. 15 years is a hell of a long time!
