Untitled 2D MMORPG/RPG Engine
(A Windows & Android game engine)
(Very early alpha stages image)
What is this?
Hello everyone, I wanted to share my progress of a free 2D MMORPG/RPG Engine that will allow you to create your own 2D MMO or singleplayer Games fast and easy. I will be releasing this engine this year! This 2D MMORPG/RPG Engine is not like any other, it will allow you to host your servers for FREE if you so choose without the worry of in-game lag. It will feature mechanics of your choice, from top-down to platformer. You will be able to create your games for both Windows PC, Windows tablets and Android devices!
Wait, I will be able to make 24/7 servers for free? How is this?
This engine runs with PN (Photon Networking) servers & dropbox . I will explain them both below…
The developer will need to create a free dropbox account, this database will store all the players information, maps, items, spells, npc.etc as well as the graphics. Everything is dropbox server sided, just like a in-game auto updater! Your players will not need to download updates manually! No need to run anything like server.exe either. (More information about this and security is posted in the comment section below)
-Photon Networking Cloud Servers (free)
PN (Photon Networking) will allow developers to host they’re game server on the PN 24/7 cloud server for free, you can also pay a monthly fee to upgrade your servers power. There are multiple packages, A free server will limit you to 20 players can only be online at once, if you pay $9 a month then you can have 100 players online at once, if you pay $39 you can have 500 players online at once.etc You will be allowed to add as much game servers into your game as you wish. For example, when a user logs in he will have the option to ‘Join Server 1’, ‘Join Server 2’.etc. This means you could have 10 PN free servers if you wish.
-Android Devices (Mobiles, Tablets.etc)
-EVERYTHING is server sided, including graphics, audio, accounts, npc data, items data.etc
-You do NOT need to pay server costs or rent a VPS if you wish not to… Your game server will run with Photon Cloud which will host your server(s) for you.
-No Coding Required
-You can choose how your game works. There are multiple mechanical choices to choose from. From clicking around like you would in runescape to using your keyboard.
-Fully Customizable GUI/HUD
-High quality pathfinding system
-Smooth Player Syncing
-Inventory & Bank system
-Day & Night System
-Create Weapons (both melee and ranged)
-Player Owned Houses
-PvP, PvM & MvM
-Full Chat System
-Resizable Screen Resolutions
-Full Screen Mode
-Create Massive Worlds For Your Players To Explore
-Resizable sprite sheet tiles (Example: You can have 4x4 which will give characters 4 frames for each movement, 3X2.etc)
Below is a very early alpha test video showing smooth player movement, path finding and a zoom-able camera. Remember, your game does not need to have all these features, you can pick and choose between them!
WIP Android device test (I made the sprite movement animation a little too fast in this video, please keep in mind that this is WIP and the tile placement for android will be easier to use in the future)
If you have any questions please post below. Also, this engine does not have a name yet, so if you have any ideas; please let me know!
