TurnAbout Is A Free Multiplayer Game Creator
Lua is an easy to learn language with instant gratification (no compilers needed, you just need a text editor -- I suggest TextPad with the lua syntax highlighting module, but notepad will do. )
This is perfect for the budding programmer looking for an easy environment to develop multiplayer game ideas, or for the professional who is just looking for a place they can whip out a fun game in a few hours.
TurnAbout also includes a heirarchical card editor (cards inheriting properties from other cards) which can be used to easily create cards-based board-games (think: Monopoly), if you like, or you are free to just take over the screen and do whatever you like.
The TurnAbout API is in constant development, so be sure to ask for anything else you need.
This game is part of the Synthetic Reality " Arcadia" family of games. (http://www. synthetic-reality. com/arcadia. htm) Players add additional channels at will using the integrated MIX server. Arcadia itself provides all networking support, in addition to text chat, voice chat, web browsing, and a parallel existence `park` environment for serenity, duck-feeding, and paintball while you wait for other players to show up.
