Post BYOND
So today I revisited this ancient gaming portal:

http://www.byond.com

Yeah, still active :D
I used to play NEStalgia a lot there before NEStalgia became paid :D :)

Also used to program in this MMO engine.

Since is active and some of the previously paid features became free (like publishing games), I tought that we could make an Housepets! MMORPG :)
What do you think of that idea?

Well, there's the thread to discuss about BYOND.

I guess that's up to you. We're already working on a Jrpg so I dunno it may be a possibility.

Is it just a base language or a proper engine? if the later, what are the limitations of the engine? what can it do or not do? if the former, how easy is it to pick up? are there tutorials?

I'ts a proper engine. The editor that is used is called Dream Maker :)

This is how The Last Conflict, made in the BYOND engine, looks:

Limitations:
  • 2D Only
  • Somewhat slow

There some are tutorials:

DM Guide: http://www.byond.com/docs/guide/
A guide to Dream Maker (Theres also a PDF version: http://www.byond.com/docs/guide/guide.pdf)

Your First World: http://www.byond.com/developer/Dantom/YourFirstWorld
A project for beginner's with tutorials included.

Before compiling Your First World, make sure you go to "Preferences for [Project Name]"
Image
And tick that box
Image

More tutorials here:
http://www.byond.com/forum/?post=40355
http://www.byond.com/developer/articles/resources

The Developers page: http://www.byond.com/developer/

The Forums: http://www.byond.com/forum/

Dream Maker also comes with a nice reference if you press F1 :)
Otherwise you can look at the online version: http://www.byond.com/docs/ref/index.html

Difficulty: Not very hard, but also not very easy.
