Ryzom (also known as The Saga of Ryzom) is a 3D MMORPG game. Starting as a commercial, proprietary game, a commercial success didn't follow and the game has been released as completely free software, including the server code and media[17], in a campaign called Free Ryzom! This has been seen as one of the biggest contributions to free software gaming.[18] The game is now free to play with most content accessible, with an optional subscription for covering the maintenance costs. It has won 2005 reader's choice best story award.[19]

It has to be noted that the server world data have not been released and therefore remain a proprietary monopoly of the game maintainers.[20] Private servers can be established but have to create their own data.[21]

The game is very well playable without subscription, though it adds a few advantages that a non-casual player may find very useful. These include:[22]

  • higher level cap (250 vs 125)
  • four mounts (as opposed to one)
  • permanent experience catalyzer (leveling twice as fast)
  • other minor privileges

Ryzom features PvE, consentual PvP, crafting, advanced mob AI (such as carnivores attacking herbivorous herds), dynamic environment (with changing weather and seasons), 4 playable races (so called homins)[23] and a classless RPG system.[17]

There exists an extensive number of associated projects and web resources, such as Ryzom Commons[24] – a repository of free-licensed resources related to the game. These include the game assets and user contributed media, such as screenshots, that can be used e.g. at the official Wiki. Another interesting project is Ryzom Armory[25] – a website offering detailed info on individual players, guilds (only those who explicitly make their info public), the game world etc.

Children of Ur is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

Children of Ur is an MMORPG that is based on the public domain source release of Glitch. However, the source code was ported from ActionScript to Dart. The game is still in pre-alpha state.

One of the notable aspects of Glitch was an intentional focus away from combat, and Children of Ur follows the same path.

There are two parts of the software: coUclient and coUserver.
