Here's a game engine that you can try to see if you would like to use it to develop your own game.

Quote
After about 2 years of development of our own web MMORPG (http://www.nowhere-else.org) we decided to put parts of our game engine in the hands of nearly everybody. So we took our code, removed the look&feel of our game, removed parts which for the moment we believe should be available only in our online game, packaged every single file into a simple to install application which let you create your own worlds on your own PC or even create your very own web RPG online.

Our game engine will be delivered full of all the needed things to let you start right away, like an installer, a simple database, arts, and even a simple map with a simple quest to let you understand how you should proceed. But we didn't stopped here. We give you full access to the source code of the engine itself, which will let more advanced game developers modify the game engine or add their own content.

In order to let you start without investing a lot of money, we decided to deliver two standard packages. You may check the features on the table found on the left.

As we think it's always better to check before spending some money, even if it's only 50$, we suggest that you either play our game to have an idea of what a web MMORPG could look like, and/or try the demo of the game engine as you would have it running on your PC. To avoid problems, we have however disabled any save functionalities.

That looks pretty neat. I poked around a bit. It is a PHP web-based application. Looks like a great way to have an ongoing game with your own group of buddies.

I remember I once started on writing a game engine like that and its a lot more work than I would expect. So 50 or even 200 dollars for the engine with source code is very well worth its money if you are serious about developing an online game. Great find!

Maybe I should put up a donation page and if I hits $200 I'll buy it and build and host a DonationCoder MMORPG!

We could do that together, or with a group of people!  greenclp Working in a team would surely produce something awesome with all knowledge bound together smiley
