Because of the fact that we have lot of work at school and job we had to suspend the Lofwyr project.
- New Lofwyr logo
- Intro to game
- Suspend project development
It's possible to resume development in the future. If You would like to play full version of Lofwyr please tell us about it (emails in Contact section).
Lofwyr, Draco Occidentalis is a graphical MUD (something like Tibi@). In a virtual world user can walk (discover map), drink, eat, fight with monsters and other players, trade and sleep (some features are actually not available). Each player has his/her own statistics which can be expanded. Users can talk and trade with each other or in shops. We are going to write engine (with two-dimensional graphics) and basic world, which every user (programmer) could expand by adding a new map, new characters, improving graphics, etc. (game will be open source :) ).
This game is mutliplayerable only by a client - server architecture. Server can be run on Linux (maybe some others Unix too), clients on Windows and Linux (not available yet).
Server is written in C++, actually available client is written in Delphi. We consider to make client for Linux (GTK+ or Qt) or port in Java (for portability).
More info about program you can find on projects group page.
You can subscribe our mailing list to be notified about changes and/or to ask questions about Lofwyr.

This game is written by a two students of Wyższa Szkoła Informatyki Stosowanej i Zarządzania (www.wsisiz.edu.pl) (Poland). We were inspired by subject named Client-Server Applications Programming lectured by dr inż. Marcin Inkielman.
