This library (aesop-mgf) is a simple shell repository, used to make it easy for developers to build the many sub-libraries and repository sources needed for full games.
The two main sub-libraries are aesop-server (the reference server implementation) and aesop-client (a sample OpenGL-based client implementation).
AESOP is aimed at storytellers focused at small groups (16-32 people at most) all participating in the same story. It is not a MMORPG engine. You may want to try WorldForge for that.
This library is released under the BSD License.
This library is in alpha stage.
There is no binary download: instead, this project uses the Wavepacket Build System to automatically pull down the appropriate version of source, and build that locally. Each release is actually a small .build file that drives a build script to automatically build a local copy of repositories for you. Each release contains a .build file and an html file with instructions. Browse releases: AESOP Multiplayer Game Framework Files
