Arianne is a multiplayer online engine to develop turn based and real time games, providing a simple way of creating the game server rules and clients like our MORPG Stendhal. Our engine Marauroa uses Java and SQL for hosting hundreds of players on a solo host.

Stendhal is a fun friendly and free multiplayer online adventure game with a huge and rich world. With hundreds of NPCs and different quests, features like the Travel log and achievement system keep track of progress. Thousands of creatures are ready to fight, above and below ground, and as players level up they can compare themselves on a detailed stats website.

The engine Marauroa provides a simple way of creating games on a portable and robust server architecture. Marauroa manages the client server communication and provides an object orientated view of the world for game developers. It handles database access in a transparent way to store player accounts, character progress and the state of the world

User Reviews

  • Normal game engine with Python.

  • Pretty cool RPG, though the design and character creation/character paperdoll was kinda odd.

  • Arianne RPG is a very well designed and maintained 2D Java based RPG game engine. It is surprisingly well documented compared to its competition. Aranne RPG's Stendhal MMORPG is also one of few Java-based games that I have come across that is completely open to and promoting of open source contribution.
