Finding the right client to play Sindome can be a matter of personal preference as much as it is dependent on your system limitations. Let's give you some options. If you find other clients you like that aren't listed here, let us know.
Our homegrown modern gaming client is built on modern web standards such as WebSockets and HTML5. This client requires no installation, operates over standard web protocols and can be used with secure, 256-bit encryption. You use it within your favorite, modern, web browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox* and Internet Explorer 10. We believe in this client so strongly, that we use it ourselves to administer the game world. Play using this client now.
If you're on Windows (as far back as Windows 2000) and want something installed, VMoo is our recommendation. VMoo was developed explicitly for LambdaMOO-based text games like Sindome. Its lightweight, provides ample input and output buffers, understands the ScrollLock key, permits configuring ANSI colors, and supports local editing (including admin-only code editing!). Unlike our Modern Gaming Client, you can use VMoo to connect to other text games in addition to Sindome. VMoo is free to use, but is no longer maintained by its author. Read more about VMOO.
Macintosh users looking for something installable should go for Atlantis. It's built using native OS X technologies like Cocoa, so its more responsive than most other Mac clients out there. Its comparable to VMoo in that it supports automatic-locking scrollback, configurable ANSI colors, local editing as well as support for connecting to any text-based MOO, MUD, MUSH or MUCK. We have more detailed instructions for Atlantis here.
New to the family, our Modern Gaming Client can be installed from the Windows Store directly to your Start screen. It's free to install and we hope you find it useful. Download Sindome now.
MUDRammer ($2.99 last we checked) is a modern mobile app for MUD/MOO gaming. Another good client is Pocket MUD Pro. It's also $2.99. The free MUD clients aren't worth a damn frankly. The $0.99 iMud telnet client is acceptable if thats the most you can afford. Otherwise you're left with sub-par telnet clients written for computer hackers.
We recommend MuClient for android devices. It's focused on MOOs, MUCKs and MUSHes and doesn't include all the MUD centric features of the more well-known clients. Clients like Mukluk are more popular, but thats due to features that are against our rules. MuClient is also free and works with Android as far back as version 1.5.
If you're a blackberry user, there is still hope for you. The $0.99 BSSH - SSH (Secure Shell) Client. It's more than you need, but its being maintained and has both a legacy client for BB 7 as well as a new one for BB 10.
