Internet Relay Chat!

March 7th, 2011 by Simon in Development, Interesting Stuff

(click the image to go to a web-based IRC client!)

We created a channel on the network in order to provide a platform for chatting. Feel free to log in and chat with other M.A.R.S. users! And maybe, occasionally one of us will be online, too.

So if you have a small problem which is not worth to be posted in the forum, if you want to spread some ideas, or just talk to other free-minded people, join us there! You can use the web-based client (click the image above) or use your own client like X-Chat or Pidgin.

Channel: #marsshooter

Hope you like them :D
