The Mana World (TMW) is a serious effort to create an innovative free and open source MMORPG. It uses 2D graphics and aims to create a large and diverse interactive world. The game aims to be a unique place for people to interact not only by fighting each other but to play life, form a community within the community, or just simply chat. Although the game is never-ending and a linear story cannot be applied, it should have enough background to describe and predefine tribes, kingdoms, and the environment overall. Fullfilled quests should lead to certain events depending on them being solved. Quests should also encourage teamwork.
FIFE is a cross-platform 2.5D game creation framework written in C++ and Python. Games can be created with a combination of engine, editor tools, game specific scripts, and game content (e.g. maps, graphics, and sounds). The framework is not tied to any type of game (e.g. RTS, RPG), but instead provides a flexible platform for all of them. It supports different isometric views and a pure top-down view. Instead of full 3D flexibility, the engine focuses mainly on using high quality 2D graphics. This puts fewer demands on target platforms and also simplifies the framework and game development.
Battletech MUX is an Internet based, real-time rendition of the popular Battletech board game. Players take to the front lines in their very own mechs, tanks, and similar implements of destruction. Featuring an internal scripting language called SoftCode, game admins may sculpt their sites into whatever they can imagine, be it small-scale combat or massive, galactic conflict.
