Combined with best-of-breed MMOG technology, the Kaneva Game Platform (KGP) is a full integrated and unified system that includes the client, Kaneva Game Editor, artificial intelligence and server components. Using a proven unified platform, studio resources can focus on adding features to their worlds rather than trying to assemble and integrate disparate parts together. Studios get games to market faster with richer content at a much lower cost.

Easily, and with no upfront investment, game studios and Mod teams can now develop high-end, multi-genre, Massively Multi-Player Online Games (MMOG) and host them using our managed services to gain immediate exposure and significant royalties while maintaining complete content control.

engine is dead

Been quite a while since i voiced my opinion on this engine, but to prevent other users from wasting their time, I've decided to break the bad news to any passers by.

Over the last 2 years Kaneva has backed away from the community and kept further releases of the engine to themselves to create their "Second Life" clone. Documentation has not been updated in years, and is should hardly be considered half way decent, hell it's crap. Don't bother with the engine, community is pretty much dead.

If you want a mmo engine, look into visual3d.net (also the URL) though it is not game ready, they are releasing steady updated versions.
