God Wars II - out of beta

God Wars II ended up in open beta for far longer than I'd originally intended, partly because I kept getting sidetracked and partly because I'm too picky about everything being "just right".

A few months ago I realised that the mud itself was already fully playable, so I decided to set myself a deadline to clear up as many of the outstanding minor issues as possible. That deadline is today, 19th July 2010. Exactly 5 years after open beta started, and exactly 15 years after the first advert for the original God Wars mud - so it was an easy date to remember

Of course there are still things that need to be done, and plenty of new projects that are still under development, but that's always going to be the case - a finished mud is a stagnant mud, after all.

God Wars II is a combat-focused mud with a dark fantasy setting, where players take on the role of supernatural godlike beings. It uses true coordinates instead of rooms, and a manual combat system that requires simultaneous control of multiple body parts.

The address is godwars2.org 3000

There is also a graphical MUSHclient plugin (with an MSP soundpack), although this part is still a work in progress.

Here are some screenshots of the plugin in action - click each image to enlarge it to full size:

Running between the giant ant hills can be risky business, but I pause briefly to take a look at my dynamically generated character description:

I'll toast you on that Kavir. NWA was 5 years in Beta and supposed to be 2.

Good luck and enjoy!

Grats Kavir!
I've been playing your mud on and off for around 2 years. (I dont have the longest attention span ).
You one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) mud designer out there. I am really happy to see Godwars2 is going 'Live'.

Cheers and many thanks for a fun game. And good luck with future development of GW2.
