Grotto

Grotto is a persistent multiplayer web project that treats html pages as rooms that human players navigate in real time. Born from this idea I had while driving for 20 hours, thinking about a turn based Unity game I’ve been working on.

My parents were spelunkers.

It would be wonderful if this could become the game for my python character generator

I imagined that there would be a battery of mock personality test questions that would generate the seed for the character generator (e.g. Mountain, Ultima IV), which has a list of randomly named skills which may have no actual bearing on the game play. Character types (animal, robot, human, ghost, obelisk, fungus, vegetable) would have some effect on what happens when characters meet, or possibly add a few simple verbs.
