    Default Eclipse Game Sysytem

    I made a game called Post Nuke. Its a 2 D game based on Eclipse Game system. The game is done, and is up and running on my computer. Do you know of any good full time servers that will host my game? So far when I Google it the cheapest is $17 a month. My budget is more like $5 a month. Thnx, GAME ON!


    I really wish there were some awesome server that takes on small games for FREE

    Depends on the scale of the game. How many people can play it at once, and what kind of bandwidth it needs/uses. I would recommend using your own connection and pc as a server if you can't afford $17 a month. Your not likely to find cheaper than that without entering the equivalent of the back alley of the internet. With that $17 one possibly already in there.

    Yea I might have to do that. But I used to do it and it was a real pain in the but keeping the server going 24/7

    I'm going to keep researching around and see what I can come up with

    Amazon EC2 has a lot of types of virtual servers; if you're a first-time subscriber, you can get a micro instance for dirt cheap, and have it run 24/7 for a year, paying only a couple of bucks a month. It's not very powerful, but if you're just running a server for a couiple dozen people for a 2D game, it wouldn't really need to be.

    If you have any sort of experience with Linux/SSH, it should be relatively straightforward to set up. If you need a windows machine, things might get more complicated, and more expensive. Give it a look.
