I’m roaming the internet for the last few weeks looking for a 2d/2.5d
mmorpg engines. I’ve checked out the engines database on this site and
on the wikipedia. And pretty much all engines that i could find, that
appear to be close to what i need, but i cant seem to locate a engine
that satisfies my requirements.
Me and my graphics designer were developing a browser based rpg, but we
would like the sequel to be a application rather than browser based
We’re looking to create a classic jrpg game look (top down view, real
time battles), similar to the first zelda games, phantasy star series
(sega genesis) and other similar games.
The main features i would like to have are:
- engine/framework that is designed from the start to be used in
- ultimately a 2.5d, 2d over d3d engine
- with possibility of including the source code (open source by
default, or via payment)
- free or up to 500$ in cost, or some kind of revenue sharing
- preferably a c# or c++ based client. C++ based server.
- with scripting engine, lua or custom
Oh and if the engine is closed source, the more features it has the
That’s pretty much all!
Thanks in advance for your responses! ;)

In my days as student some partners developed a nice and cool 2D mmorpg
using Arianne they develop the entire
game in about 6 months. I don’t know if the engine works for you, about
the graphics on the site, remember that the aspect depends 90% of your
Hope this helps
Im afraid that this engine is using java, we prefer a engine using
Although everything that matches most of the requirements and is worth
looking seems to be written in either vb6 or java :(
It’s java, but I remember a few months ago I played a Open Source MMORPG
with isometric graphics, as soons as I find it I let you know, itś
written in c++, I guess you can take a look if spanish sites are not a
problem for you.
Hope this one helps
I have no idea how to read/speak spanish ;) But ill try the google
Sadly the Evidyon engine seems like a full 3d engine, i preffer to stay
away from full 3d. Since open source engines tends to be very heavy on
the pc requirements when using full 3d engines. Plus we do not have the
man power to work our project on a full blown 3d engine.
But still if you find anything interesting ill be glad if you share it,
thanks again! :)
Possibly look at FIFE. Also, take a look at some 2d c++ libraries like
Alegro, which will help get you started. I think SFML has networking
code and a sprite library.
You might also want to look at SmartFoxServer for networking code. Doing
a google search for isometric engines will yield better results than
asking on a site like this.
