About the GGZ Gaming Zone
Founded in early 2000, GGZ has grown from a simple network game architecture to a versatile online gaming center, entirely based on Free Software (Open Source). With its integrated player ranking system and features such as game spectators, player invitations, guest players and the surrounding chat system, it makes game module development an easy task. Even more so since several game support libraries have been written.

Projects like GNOME Games and KDE Games and several other game projects use GGZ to get a powerful multiplayer infrastructure.
