Fully browser-based internet web game.
This means it's highly accessible. No special client program to download.
Play it anywhere (work, school, home, a friend's house) without having to
install the game on each computer. This is a wonderful thing for anybody who
can't or won't install a special program just to play an online game.
Each day, players get a number of “turns” (closet fights, player fights,
and other options) to use. This helps keep the game fair. People
with tons of free time don't have a special advantage over people who don't.
It's also a great game for busy people. Since Lunatix is turn-based,
it doesn't take too long to play the daily turns. This means more time
left for other games and other interests -- great for busy people!
Lunatix chat is built right in. This means no cumbersome IRC connection
and no slow-loading java applications. Lunatix chat allows whispering,
emotes/actions (to be added soon), full color-code recognition, and billions
of channels for public chat or privacy.
IGM Add-Ons - an ever-growing game!
Lunatix Online includes an awesome feature called “IGM” (In-Game Module)
support. This means anybody with the inclination to do so can use
our FREE developer's kit to create add-ons for the game. Not only will
this allow the institution to grow, but it also paves the way for
new places and adventures created by Lunatix Online players --
even you can do it!
Twisted, wacky sense of humor.
It's not uncommon to actually laugh out loud at some of the situations
faced in Lunatix Online. It's a great break away from the serious
routines of everyday “real” life. Where else can you flirt with a nurse,
kill a few imaginary monsters, play a prank on somebody, and visit with
some interesting historical people all in the same day?
In-game email system.
Lunatix allows private player-to-player mail. It's built right in!
Send email to other patients, or read the mail that comes in to you.
The system allows mail to be saved, deleted, or replied to easily!
Optional Download Graphics Options.
We all know that getting graphics across the internet takes time.
That's why some web pages take a while to load. Although you can
play Lunatix Online this way, the option (in “preferences”) exists
to download the game graphics so that they're loaded locally
which equates to near-instant display of game scenes!
Easy-to-use Color Code System.
Lunatix includes 15 color codes that are easy to use anywhere. Player
names can contain colors. Chat and mail can contain colors. Virtually
any part of the game allows color codes. Don't just “say” it... say it
Virtually no player limit!
Unlike some other games of this type, Lunatix currently imposes no maximum
limit on the number of players the game will hold! New players attempting
to sign up for the first time won't be greeted by any dastardly “game is
full” message. However, Lunatix does require that each player only create
one single game character. Multiple “patients” are not allowed.
