|M.U.G.E.N. is a 2D fighting game engine
designed by Elecbyte starting in 1999 .
Elecbyte distributed beta versions that ran
under DOS, Linux, and Windows. The engine allows for
anyone to create characters, stages, and other game
objects through interpreted text files and graphics
and sound compilations, and it also supports MP3
background music during gameplay. Despite the
popularity of the game engine, in 2003 Elecbyte
unexpectedly abandoned it, official site was closed
(http://mugen.elecbyte.com/). By default M.U.G.E.N.
is distributed with only one character (Kung Fu Man)
and two scenes (room backgrounds) All other
characters and scenes must be installed
