Senior Project - TurnAbout


A Multi-Player Network Game of Medieval Conquest

Senior Project: 1997-1998
Daniel Chase, Michael Ely, Charles Griffis and Jamey Wood
Boulder, CO

Established in 1993, VR-1, Inc. is a technology-driven developer of "massively multiplayer" games and interactive entertainment for the Internet, commercial online services, and emerging broadband and cable networks. The company supplies existing networks and their subscribers with compelling online entertainment content.

The goal of this project was to create a multiplayer turn-based game using Java and the new JDBC Database Interface. VR-1 pioneered in-browser turn-based gaming with its product UltraCorps, which used the D2G engine. This project extends in-browser gaming possibilities through the use of Java. It combines the D2G and JDBC technologies to produce a turn-based game of medieval conquest. The world is populated with medieval characters such as knights, pikemen, and peasants, who fight, build castles and ships, and generally try to conquer the world.
