Although largely in development "The Grid" is a 2D game engine specifically for the RPG/Adventure area. with a functioning event subsystem it will enable people to define games through xml files which are interpreted by the-grid binary.
I hope to add more to content to the site, but for now I can be found here
Please note that this site is severly out of date, since I have not had time to update it. This is now officially a dead project.
Since I have a fully working rpg engine, if anyone is willing to supply full artwork I will be happy to assist them in how to use The Grid in making their story.
