Sorry, I couldn't resist...

Anyway, the project page says this is going to be similar to "Final Fantasy". How cool is that!

Not too much there yet, though. Here's hoping updates to the project show up on MozillaZine.

Yep, I've been bitten by the RPG bug. I fully intend to get this up and running as a really awesome game engine.... I'm suprised no-one else has thought of this already...

It's been done. We made them for my brother's children. We based all of our "Web-based" games on Netscape 4.0 and Internet Explorer though. It would be interesting to try the same thing with Mozilla. Maybe, with that Javascript I/O thing, it would not be necessary to save all of the data in cookies.

Then it'd look lke a cat. No, the problem isn't the lack of whiskers. It's the small, triangular ears. Bunnies need long ears!
