Project History

qtMUD’s first commit was on September 3rd, 2016, with rapid development happening until October 8th, 2016. A basic notion of how to handle things was sketched out, but then real life happened and the project stopped being updated.

On December 17th, 2018, I had the time and interest in working qtMUD again, and so began to overhaul it. While a lot of the idea of the existing code seemes solid, I’m unhappy with the implementation.


This project is open to contributions. For complete instructions on how to do so, see the Manual of qtMUD Development.


This is a personal project that at the moment has no costs and requires no funding. Donations to this project’s maintainer may be made through emsenn.net/contribute
