Evennia MUD/MU* Creation System

unittestciimg Coverage Status Pypi Version

Evennia is a modern library for creating online multiplayer text games (MUD, MUSH, MUX, MUCK, MOO etc) in pure Python. It allows game creators to design and flesh out their ideas with great freedom.

Evennia does not impose a particular style, genre or game mechanic. Instead it solves the boring networking and basic stuff all online games need. It provides a framework and tools for you to build the game you want. Coding in Evennia is done using normal Python modules imported into the server at runtime.

Evennia has extensive documentation. It also has a very active community with discussion forums and a discord server to help and support you!


pip install evennia
    (windows users once: py -m evennia)
evennia --init mygame
cd mygame
evennia migrate
evennia start / stop / reload

See the full installation instructions for more help.

Next, browse to http://localhost:4001 or use your third-party mud client to connect to localhost, port 4000 to see your working (if empty) game!

screenshot A game website is created automatically. Connect to your Evennia game from your web browser as well as using traditional third-party clients.
