Our team is proud to present MMT - MMORPG game prototype developed using bleeding-edge Ungine 3D engine and RunServer middleware. First presented at GDC 2009 in Moscow on Windows, MMT is being reborn on Linux. We have set out to develop a full-featured MMORPG in a fantasy setting with traditional third-view camera and ASWD control.
When the contest began we got only a rough demo of the game available for Windows in Russian, but this demo was ported to Linux, where development will now be focused, and translated into English. Aside from the game engine itself along with its shader technology, which is out of our control, the client will be open source.
