List of projects accepted into Atomic Blue
Atomic Blue (www.atomicblue.org) is a Non Profit Corporation focused on building virtual worlds. Our mission, as taken from our bylaws document is to (a) to foster the growth of a community of developers skilled in developing multiplayer online role playing games; (b) to encourage the development of a large community of players that will interact with each other through the software, free from restrictions based on race, color, gender, sexual preference, beliefs, religion, national origin or age, and ( c ) to promote the development and growth of a virtual world in which such interactions may occur.
Our current and main project is PlaneShift, which is powered by an Open Source (under GPL) engine for Massive Multiplayer Online Worlds created by us. The PlaneShift Engine is one of the few to be really usable and in production with thousands of users. We do not have any income at the moment and the project is completely staffed by volunteers and supported by sponsors which are donating the hardware and bandwidth needed. Our team is a distributed team of talented and motivated people, which share the same objective of building a great free mmorpg and to see it in action. We always took the approach of proceeding by small steps, releasing to a live server the features as soon as those where developed, to test those with real users and take actions accordingly to responses. This has been pretty successful up to now, with more than 500,000 registered accounts on our servers.
