Claypool, Mark L.
Broken World is a non-violent, non-competitive MMO set in an expansive post-fuel world with an emphasis on building a community. The art style is drawn from the real world, using low-poly models. The game is built upon a unique peer-to-peer networking model, which allows for a low-resource server. It also features a terrain rendering system that utilizes PNGs to store landscape data efficiently. Along with the game, a suite of custom development tools were built to allow developers to insert game content quickly. Post-development, the game and its related technologies were evaluated for their effectiveness.
