Open Source AJAX Game Engine

Today I've open sourced the game engine to an old game I started work on and abandoned in 2006.

It's a horrible, failed experiment, using polling and sloppy JavaScript, some horrible PHP 4x syntax, and un-optimized MySQL. It was one of the first apps/games I ever built. I learned a lot of lessons with that project, most notably that PHP and MySQL were the wrong technologies to use for such a project.

I do plan on building a Cobalt Calibur 3 one day.
