Frogatto & Friends

If you haven't checked it out already, I highly recommend taking a look at Frogatto, a free 2D platformer for Windows, Linux, and Macintosh.  I've been playing it myself, and while I'm not far enough in to write a real review, what I can say is that the controls are smooth and natural and the graphics are all-around gorgeous.  Plus, the game itself is just plain fun.

Of particular interest is the fact that Frogatto's engine is Open Source and completely moddable.  While they've maintained the copyright on their images (they plan to sell their game on the iPhone), the engine itself is GPLed and quite feature-rich.  It's also noteworthy that they contributed their previous art to OGA a while back, which you can find here.

Congrats to the Frogatto team on their 1.0 release!

EDIT: Ogrebane notes in a comment:

"It's worth mentioning that the designer and lead programmer of the FOSS TBS Battle for Wesnoth, David White, is the creator of Frogatto. Other Wesnoth contributors who are actively involved in the Frogatto project are Jetrel, crimson_penguin, Neorice, and shadowmaster."
