What is Alter Aeon?

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 the 1998 series web pages:
