Epitaph is now open! Epitaph is a text based MUD/MMO based in the
grim darkness of the zombie apocalypse. We've been under
development since December of 2009 - we've been working very hard on
it, and we're now ready for our version 1.0 release. We are
completely free to play - no sign up fees, no micro transactions.
You won't be asked for a penny, now or in the future. We have an 18
age rating though, so if you're younger than that you'll have to
wait a while before you can try us out. We're aiming to be a highly
accessible game, so those of you with screen readers will hopefully
find us welcoming.
You play the role of a survivor thrust into an unfriendly world full
of factional interests and diminishing supplies. We have exciting
ranged and melee combat, fully featured crafting, clans and
achievements for players and clans, deep and involving stealth, and
hundreds of unique quests. We have keyword based discussions that
let you probe NPCs for their deepest, darkest secrets. We have
randomly generated missions. We have hundreds of commands, many
of which you can purchase as you advance through the game. We have
knacks that let you fine-tune your play style, and around 90 skills
that you can master as you gain in power and confidence.
While our game is primarily action focused, you don't have to kill
to get ahead - you can sneak your way to success, or forge your
future in crafting. We have a random events generator that keeps
things interesting. We have sound and sight based situational
awareness. We have electronics, laptops, mobile phones, and video
cameras. We have practise based learning and XP based advancement.
We have both local and remote computer hacking. We have a deep,
engaging morality system and extensive narrative based gameplay. For
those who enjoy the social aspects of MUDs we have community based
role playing rewards and police systems.
Man, we've got it all.
Epitaph is a constantly evolving and developing game with a
dedicated creator team. We'd love if you stopped by and checked us

As a small note though - consider your first few runs through the
game to be 'disposable'. It turns out the apocalypse is not a
forgiving place. We're TOUGH but FAIR, but you need to keep your
wits about you and practise good survivor discipline. Also, we're a
new 1.0 release - expect bugs and typos. We're fixing these as
rapidly as we can!
Hope to see you at the end of the world,
