Daimonin – free to play open source MMORPG

Daimonin is a free software multiplayer online computer role-playing game that is based on the open source Crossfire.

Inside the game you will meet many other people in a big, persistent virtual heroic fantasy world! Explore, fight, meet friends and enemies, become a master with sword and magic or be the best weapon smith around.

Using the SDL library, it provides cross-platform clients with 2D isometric tile graphics, sound effects, and background music.
