I really can't remember how I found that Multiverse had gone open source...
...nope can't remember I think I just stumbled on it when I was searching for tools/api etc. So... Google.
I know I was floored when I saw it was not only open source but MIT
I did look at it probably 2 years ago and thought that actually 10% was pretty reasonable. Still wanted to
do it all myself though ( then I found humility
The only obvious competitor to Multiverse is Hero Cloud and it's 70/30. Yes they handle the billing, servers etc and I hope they succeed but I'm here at Multiverse for the long haul.
I know I appreciate the work that went into Multiverse... just reading the API and Wiki is humbling.
We've all read enough "How do I make an MMO?" threads...I just hope people who look at Multiverse realize that it's about the best chance an indie or small team has to actually ship an mmo and the tech is free...
You need a bigger and more prominent Donate Button!
Maybe the foundation can offer support contracts, consultancy, work a deal with Vanquish...
"Sleepy Giant" ? http://www.sleepygiant.com/
And of course the Developer Marketplace. If you do that right I think it'll rock! I know I'll be a regular customer.
Good Luck guys
