Failing Making multiplayer online games most of my LD’s i’m really curious to know who’s with me in the genre, there were a few but really fun ones a few LDs ago, i remember a fighting platformer and some really frenetic  and good-looking mining game (WITH LASERS).

I’m in again hoping it will be better than my last one, aiming for some simple and decent mechanic to come out of my brain, more in the spirit of The last Square.

I’ll be using :

Who will dare making a MMO ?

  1. One of the main reason I haven’t tried massive multiplayer is that it requires a server to run, which is usually not free. (unless I get one of the free PHP servers that keep breaking down all the time). Do you know of ways to get free or cheap servers?
    … and the second reason is that it’s hard to implement ;-P

    I usually just let my computer run and act as a server… during the time of the votes.

    B Plan, have a raspberry Pi and make a server in Python.
    I also know that people often talk about the Amazon AWS free tier as well.

    Now for the hard part, i don’t see it *harder* than a non MMO (but multiplayer) game since it often means that you haven’t limited the number of player in your game and that the game mechanics allows for unlimited users. Now, of course your server might die at some point if you’re among the lucky TOP 10 :3
