About Us

Welcome to M.U.G.E.N - Up!

I'm ZerX, the administrator of this site. 

M.U.G.E.N - Up is a community about M.U.G.E.N or simply known as MUGEN, a 2D fighting engine designed by Elecbyte, that allows us to create personalized fighting games. Everything can be customized, from the game's design to the characters, stages and sounds. The MUGEN engine has been around since 1999, but it has been improved through time, the latest stable build being version 1.0. 

Users who develop content for the game engine are commonly referred to as authors. These authors create customized content such as characters, stages and screen packs/skins. Often authors will port popular characters from 2D fighting engines such as the Street Fighter series, or from TV and book series such as The Simpsons and Sailor Moon. Many authors will also create original content. Many websites exist to showcase and disperse the developed content and forms what is often referred to as the "Mugen Community".
Due to the customizable nature of the game engine, no two versions of M.U.G.E.N. are the same. Each person is encouraged to download their own copy of the game engine and to create or add content to match their personal preference. Groups of M.U.G.E.N. authors will often collaborate to produce a full game using the engine. These full games are available at a variety of quality levels and are released under the general M.U.G.E.N. license.
"Under this license, permission is granted to use the M.U.G.E.N Environment free of charge for non-commercial purposes... Elecbyte provides a M.U.G.E.N redistributable package, containing a minimal M.U.G.E.N Environment, that may be included with third party content for redistribution."
Here at MUGEN - Up we offer only the best MUGEN games! We provide information for how to correctly install them and provide live customer support in case of problems. Our goal is to become the largest MUGEN database and we are doing everything in our power to achieve that!
We hope you enjoy your time with us!
