Have you ever wondered how to build your own Online Game? This Handbook will give you the tools to face the development of Multiuser Environments for any platform. You will learn the Foundations behind Multiplayer Games (MMORPGs, MUVEs,...) and how to put together all the bricks to finally build an Online Environment. You will get a general overview and deep knowledge of Multiuser Environments, which will enable you to face the development from simple turn-based games to complex worlds with users interacting with each other.
LCME stands for Low Complexity Multiuser Environment, that is, an online virtual environment where users can interact with each other and with the environment itself through an avatar. Because of its Low Complexity, an LCME is meant to run in devices such as smartphones or tablets.
This paper is not a programming guide. This paper is a study on the foundations of LCMEs, their main problems and their limitations. This Handbook will teach you what you need to learn before developing your own LCME, which could be the base of a MUVE, a MOBA or a MMO in general.
This video shows an LCME built for iPad following the guides given in the Handbook:
