Arianne comprises aÂ multi player online games framework and engine to develop turn based and real time games, and the various games which use it.
The main subprojects active now are the framework/engine, called Marauroa, and a multiplayer online adventures game called Stendhal. Some of the original subprojects are inactive now, you will find archived information about them on this site.
Arianne has been in development sinceÂ 1999 and has evolved from a tiny application written in pseudo-C++ to a powerful, expandable but simple server framework called Marauroa, running on theÂ Java platform. Marauroa is totallyÂ client agnostic.
Our reference client engines are coded usingÂ Java in order to achieve maximum portability.
