Consider all serial numbers filed off homages paid.
DX is a life simulation game designed to
- satirize the Animal Crossing series,
- document its rules,
- address some of its deficiencies,
- provide a framework on which an RPG can build, and
- be free software.
It is to Animal Crossing as GNU is to UNIX.
But be warned that the Story of Seasons-inspired PC game Stardew Valley will be a tough act to follow.
"DX" is rumored to stand for "Double Crossing". Not necessarily to be confused with long-distance ham radio reception, nor remakes of Game Boy games for Game Boy Color, nor double crucifixion.
