Alter Aeon is a free online text game, played by people from all over the world. The primary language is english; players with an intermediate comprehension level should be able to play the game without difficulty.

There are over two hundred unique areas to explore, created by many different builders at varying writing skill levels. Players will be exposed to varying grammar and writing styles as well as different vocabulary sets as they advance.

This is a multiplayer game, and there are extensive chat and posting features. There are always other players on-line, whether for help, competition, or just to talk with.

Blind players - please see our Blind and Visually Impaired Player Support page. The game is blind-friendly for the visually impaired, but finding a client that works well with your reader can be difficult.

Alter Aeon is based on a MUD game server. MUDs have been in development for over twenty years, for educational, research, social, and simple entertainment purposes; Alter Aeon has been on-line and open since 1995, and caters to a large audience of foreign and blind players.

Note - Alter Aeon may not be suitable for younger players. It is an RPG (Role Playing Game), and one of the primary ways to advance your character is via attacking monsters or other creatures. Additionally, many of the user channels are player-owned and unmoderated.
