Haven't actually played it, but a look around the site, and the fact that it's turn-based, suggest the following things are being used:


  • HTML (obviously), for the website generation

  • A server-side language, such as PHP or Perl for the content generation

  • Possibly a client-side language, although first look suggests there isn't (my turn-based browser-game uses javascript)

  • A database backend, presumably an SQL of some type

  • Something to process each turn on the server - take your pick of language



They are presumably also using their own server-program (Apache?) to test things before downloading them to the active servers.

Just an informed guess based around what the site looks like and the description of the gameplay - if you're really interested, you could always ask on their forums.
