XVEN (eXtensible Virtual ENvironment): The Next Evolution in Interactive Fiction
XVEN, short for eXtensible Virtual ENvironment, originated from the concept of creating an interactive virtual space where users can communicate, play, and explore in a 2D environment. The name has evolved from 'E.V.E.', originally denoting 'Emulated Virtual Environment', with the change aiming to reduce confusion with existing brands.

With its extensible nature, the possibilities are vast, limited only by the imagination of its community.
