What is it?
thickishstring is a text-based MMORPG engine with a lightweight web-browser client.
Right now it's in an incredibly rough prototype stage, but there's enough here to let you log in, move around, talk to other players, create your own realms and let other players play them.
This is where the source code and what we shall try to laughingly call 'the documentation' is stored.
How do I play it?
Right now thickishstring is definitely a tech demo; but there is a test server, which is up intermittently. Any content created there may be deleted without warning.

It might even be running.
Where can I get it?
Right now you'll need to check it out of the source repository using the Fossil DVCS. Use the following commands:
mkdir thickishstring cd thickishstring fossil clone http://cowlark.com/thickishstring thickishstring.fossil fossil open thickishstring.fossil
Alternatively, you can download a snapshot of the current development version (there is, right now, no stable version):

More installation instructions are in the README.
