This is not an actual, massively multiplayer mud, but rather a semi-multiplayer game for the sake of itself. It's text based with a graphical element, and set on a vast, planetary world, with a multitude of playable race and class combinations.
The goal is to stop a storm which will destroy the planet after about an hour of playing (although you can continue playing the same character). If you triumph, genetically modified dragons emerge and begin to destroy the planet again. There's also a zombie apocalypse, so good luck.
Once you have created a character, type the word "list" by itself to begin learning commands. Use these commands to overcome the challenges which you find while exploring. If you discover a bug, please report it. Any feedback is a greatly appreciated.
You can download the executable or play it via shockwave in your browser. The download includes an updated readme text with commands, tips, race list and class list with skills. There's also source code available for Director MX 9.0 or later, if you're interested in modding or doing a similar creation.
I'm interested in browser-based MUDs so I took a look at the site several times, but couldn't figure out how to play the game in my browser. I think you need to spend some time making it easier. I doubt that many people will be willing to download and run your .exe file.
the whole website changed recently. it used to be that the only thing you could do was interact with a shockwave loader that led to the game. I sort of forgot that shockwave is a bit obscure , but the dcr file (shockwave) is part of that list, or, at the bottomish of the page is a button-like link to open the dcr in a new window.
the truth is that I think Adobe bought shockwave just so they could ruin it, because that's all they've managed to do with it. Depending on your browser and version of the shockwave plug-in, it might put up a fuss :( although throwing the dcr into a browser window should manage to work.
thanks again, i'll see if there's another way to lay it out.
