Clonks are small humans who mine, gather resources and fight each other in a classic 2D computer game originally devised by Matthers Bender as a German shareware game. You can see lots about the game on the English language website clonk.de.
It was such a popular game that it inspired the open source OpenClonk and a shift to English as well as 3D models. Written in C++, the game's website includes detailed instructions on how to build OpenClonk and debug it. It also includes a C like scripting language C4script to extend the basic game and an Eclipse extension.
