Majorly updated 11/14/2013. http://eternalcity.netai.net/arcade.html
Bugs fixed, and a fat ton of new content has been added, overhauled as well as additional game mechanics.
New areas, classes, items and monsters, as well as changes.
Also updated the source engine with all of the new streamlined code, plus more examples and templates to work with. It's both a copypixels text engine and a multiuser gaming environment which could possibly be adapted for other kinds of action using the heartbeat to keep laggy connections in sync, maybe a graphical strategy-like game.
If you want to express some kind of creation, text is a pretty easy way to accomplish that, especially if you're just one person. With text you can create a gigantic snail with mace-like tentacles in a matter of minutes, and the file size stays extremely small. You can bring huge ideas to life, and unlock the imagination just like reading a book, yet it is still interactive.
But anyway, have fun if you play the game, and cheers if the code behooves you.
Note the website has changed.
Still needing more play testing.
