A downloadable MUD

Now Defunct!

Sadly, I have had to shut down the server that was running Myelin: Escape the Spire, and the game is no longer available online.

If you would like to run your own instance of the game, note that the code is open-source though it may need some maintenance.

 This project is built on the Ranvier MUD engine, feel free to drop into our Slack if you have any questions about this project, the engine itself, or building your own game.

This was my submission for the Enter the MUD game jam of May 2018.
It won 2nd place overall!

Consider it a prototype for an eventually more-fleshed out MUD to be released with handcrafted areas, more features, and a custom client.

hello im intrested in playing but i have never played a MUD before, how do i play? do i need to download smth?

Hi! In order to play, you'll need to download a MUD client such as Mudlet, and connect to the website myelin.space via port 4000. Mudlet and other clients will have directions on how to connect using the client-specific settings.

Hey, I'm trying to use the telnet command to connect, but it's saying that it can't connect. I don't know if this is due to a syntax error or the servers are down?


It's working for me right now. Maybe the server was down for a little bit.

Hi! The server went down overnight and I was able to fix it this morning.
