Looking Ahead: Browser-Based MUD

Inevitably, I’m going to work on another MU* project. When I do, without a doubt, it will have to leave behind the arcane Telnet mechanics and shift instead to a browser-based environment.

So, the search is on: I’m looking for a text-based MUD engine for browsers.

It might be the holy grail. Chances are, I’ll never find it. But I’m convinced that if there’s a decent engine out there, it would be much easier to draw (and retain) new players if accessing the game, the lore, and your character information are all just a click away on the web.

The new phantom project won’t be OtherSpace or Necromundus. However, if I get a successful web-based game off the ground, it might be able to help feed activity toward the other games.

We shall see.

    Not so far. There do seem to be some projects floating around here and there, but nothing that seems solid.
