Some of you oldies might remember Darksun Games, by Anthony Lopes. He was the creator of Triumph War 2099. Many people including myself looked up to him and his games, however he dropped out of existance according to his site (last post 2005), yet his website still remains up.

I have wondered for many years where he went and what he is doing now. Does anyone have any ideas? It seems strange that his site is still up after such a long time: www.darksungames.com

At one stage he was even thinking about giving away the source to his sequel to Triumph War 2099. You used to be able to get the source code for the main engine on his site in the abandonware section.

Let's try and find him!

Unless he's planning on renewing it, the site looks to expire in a years time. http://www.who.is/whois/darksungames.com/ The whois doesn't really reveal much.

But yea I remember this guys site. Wasn't a fan of his games but I used to read the updates and check out the artwork maaaaany years ago.

Darksun Games will always be one of my favorite clickers.

I recently contacted Anthony (about 8 months ago...) and he said that his klik days are pretty much over, and as we noticed he doesn't update his website anymore (very sad)


I got the source for TRIUMPH, I mainly used its gfx to make a fan sequel. His downloads are still available though.

I found it kinda nice to see his name when I got in the forums page, because I was thinking about him at the same moment lol.

OMFG! You're right. Damn I used to host my games there before I had a real website. RIP indeed.

Here's the source code for his terminator sprite library:
http://www.filedropper.com/terminator
(Sorry for the lack of direct download link.)

I was thinking about it after watching Terminator 3 last night (I'm looking forward to the new one out today! - Although I won't get to see it for a week or more due to exams.)

I'm pretty sure I'd have the source to all of those abandonware games but I'd have to digg them up from other computers. If someone really wants something in particular, ask me.

[EclektiK] - That's interesting that you had contact with him! Was the source to TRIUMPH that you were talking about source code to the full game or to the same engine that is on his site/that steve posted? If you're still able to contact him, do you think you could stretch out and ask him nicely for the source code to "Karr's Castle WAR" or some of his other games? He was always pretty open to giving out stuff like that, as seen by his abandonware section. If he doesn't use Click anymore he might be willing to give them out. If he needs reassurance refer him to this thread and we'll show him how much we love him

See if you can get his source for Warbots 2 while you're at it!

I'd love to see how he made the animation for one of the mech weapons. He was/is a great pixel artist.

He is multitalented, aye? I just remembered that he made his own gauntlets out of metal, similar to ones in The Lord Of the Rings. They looked cool
