My name is Josh Ritter and I am a veteran game programmer working on an Open
Source RPG, called "Minions of Mirth".
The engine is also Open Source and features some really cool technology.
The game currently runs on Windows and OSX.
Basically, "Minions of Mirth" is a 3d MUD...

We are using Twisted for our live patching system, remote method calls and
data cache (using spread), and distributed servers.
We are also using Zope3 and the two compliment each other nicely...

Please see the "Barrage o' Links" below for an 8 minute video and
***playable*** demo/test for Windows and OSX.
We are very interested in collaborating with others on Open Source games and

I hope you find this an interesting use of Twisted!!!!
