Generic Internet Games Service

Have you ever wanted to find a server to your newly acquired multiuser game. If you in the process discovered that the Internet is huge, you know what the problem is. We ran into the same problem and decided to solve it.

We decided to try keeping a list of all the gameservers on Internet and help the game developers use this information to give the users easy access to the servers.

Working games

We would like to get our system to support all Unix, PC and Mac games. If you know of any other client-server games with source available, then send us an URL. We try to keep a list of games up to date.
