IQ is not dead, but on hold. This is my official stance on it, since I have been unable to work on it lately. Encourage me and I might just release what I've done so far towards 0.30.

The History and Future of IQ

IQ is an RPG tech demo. I have a story for it if I ever complete all the technical details. However, for now it remains a tech demo in two parts.

I first started this tech demo in December of 2000. I created a very good version of the tech demo using VERGE from then until February 2001, when I lost interest for a while. Then in October of 2001 I started from scratch using Ika, which allowed me to use object oriented programming. This greatly reduced the inability to read the code later. I also commented just about everything. This version was an attempt to do all the things I hadn't already done, then add the things I had done. A combination of the two would be an impressive tech demo.

Later, in December of 2002, I took my VERGE version and converted it to WinVERGE, which would allow users without DOS to play it. I could not do this without the code, however, because of a problem in the code which caused WinVERGE to crash. The problem was that I had lost the source code, until I went through several floppy disks of mine and discovered 2 of the later versions of it, one being the latest one that was not yet released with battle bugfixes! These versions are now available to download. Now both versions can be used by anyone with Windows.

Since March 2003, I have been working on the Ika version again. The Ika version is now the main and new version and boasts much more than the VERGE version EXCEPT a save and load system. Enjoy!

IQ
A tech demo RPG with no storyline, created using Ika and/or VERGE. Would be a rather impressive demo if the functionality for both versions was combined.... Latest versions are listed first in their respective engines. VERGE can be found at www.verge-rpg.com. Ika can be found at www.ikagames.com.
