Session Description
Come see how a slightly insane husband and wife team made an MMO in their attic that attracts over a million unique players every month. Sherwood Dungeon is a popular web-based 3D fantasy MMO created with Adobe Director. This talk includes a technical overview of using Shockwave for web-based MMO delivery and covers the approaches we choose for Sherwood - some of which actually worked! Topics include procedural content creation, strategies for optimizing content and a short demonstration of Sherwood's island generator. Overcoming some the barriers associated with being small and independent will be covered along with the many mistakes made along the way.

Idea Takeaway
Attendees will get an overview of using Adobe Shockwave for web-based MMOs and learn about some of the challenges associated with making an MMO in your basement.

Intended Audience
This talk is intended for those interested in using Shockwave 3D as a platform for web-based MMOs and anyone who likes fiercely independent and cottage industry MMO developers.
