[19:30] <+MarisaG> Hello, my name is Marisa, and I am a 50yo indie game designer in the San Francisco bay area. Back in the 90-00’s i used to work for Macromedia. I have had around 21 games on the Apple iOS app store, though i have no more there now.
[19:30] <+MarisaG> I started with RPGs back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, playing D&D (AD&D not out yet) and Traveler. And creating several EAMON text adventures, including making them work over a modem as doors on my BBS. I used to love painting figurines though I never had anyone to play games with me. My little brother was always stealing my Traveler books and materials. 😂 What can you do?
[19:31] <+MarisaG> I currently have several games supported and actively developed, and a game for the Amiga is in beta mode just waiting for final graphics. I run a BBS (yes they still exist) for the Amiga at (Link: https://AmigaCity.xyz)https://AmigaCity.xyz – to get to the BBS just telnet to amigacity.xyz.
[19:31] <+MarisaG> My current games are Imperium & Wolfpack Empire, which are multiplayer text games, a version of Super Star Trek which is based on the classing game from the 70’s-80’s. Imperium is a space strategy game similar to Empire but set in space. I also have a Battlemech MUX set in the 3067 era at the (Link: https://MekCity.com)https://MekCity.com website if you are looking for online multiplayer mech battle action. You can of course battle bots 😁
[19:32] <+MarisaG> My most fun game that is still in active development is what we are here for today is called “Mundo Sangre” which means “Blood World” and is a steampunk/zombie mash-up. It is a 2d graphical MUD/RPG and can be played either with a HTML5 browser such as the iPad or Android tablets. On the mac/win/linux platforms there is also a dedicated client with higher performance. Just go to (Link: https://MundoSangre.com)https://MundoSangre.com for more info.
[19:32] <+MarisaG> The main story to MS is that a blood rain fell killing most people and mutating others into horrible monsters, and you are on a quest to find a cure for this plague.
[19:33] <+MarisaG> I offer server hosting for several gaming platforms, (Link: https://PocketMud.com)https://PocketMud.com is for CoffeeMud text MUD hosting, and (Link: https://LugdunonCity.org)https://LugdunonCity.org is for the 2d RPG/MUD is for the multiplayer graphical MUD engine Mundo Sangre is created with. As you can see in MS you can create quests & crafting recipies within the game itself in a graphical UI, no coding required (though for more complex tasks there is scripting available). Not only can you
[19:33] <+MarisaG> As a thank you for your attending my Q&A I am giving away free hosting for Lugdunon, which I normally charge $14/month for. You will get a full website with email etc. and the game set up and ready to be customized. To be sure it is fair I will use Dan’s number roller and the highest gets the hosting 🙂
