Alter Aeon is a free, on-line text adventure game. Players can connect to the
game with any regular telnet program, or
with one of many specialized gaming clients. Most computers have a
version of telnet installed by default, but most telnet programs are of poor
quality (most notably the Microsoft Windows versions.) Using the telnet protocol
allows practically anyone in the world to connect to the game, regardless of
the type or speed of their computer. Almost any computer connected to the
internet can access Alter Aeon.
For a list of more advanced clients, you might want to look at the programs
listed on our
How To Connect
page. There are clients for almost all types of computer and operating system.
There are also several types of intelligent clients, specially designed
for playing Muds.
For history buffs, here is an old version of the 'How to Connect' web page from
