Wombat Tools

If you grew up on DOS games like Commander Keen like I did, and you do game development, you should take a look at this:


WombatTools allows you to pull the graphics (and I think the sound data too) from many old classic DOS game titles. You can pull the spritework, for example.

Since I'm not a programmer this is of no real use to me, but if any of you coders want some classic game graphics from a bygone era, this is your ticket! You'll need the original game data, but Wombat knows pretty much all the old classic game data formats and can translate them.

Apologies if this is old news. I just knew about this particular gem and thought game devs might find it useful.
