Blossom Server was an open-source server for online multiplayer video games developed by Jacob Grahn that was released on 2009-05-22 and discontinued in late 2011.

Name

Blossom Server originally started out as Multiplayer Awesome Server before being combined into MultiPlawesome when it was publicly announced[1]. Multi was dropped in the next revision, then it was further simplified into Plossom before receiving its final name.[2]

History

An unnamed "new multiplayer server" was first hinted at in a 2008-12-01 blog before its official reveal five days later under the "MultiPlawesome" name.[3] More news began appearing in the following year, with a blog announcing that Platform Racing 3 would run off it and it's new Blossom name[4], any form of account information could be saved into a database[5], and how it would be made of two servers to split the work.

Blossom's website was launched and announced on Newgrounds on 2009-04-04,[6] although the server wouldn't be made downloadable until 2009-05-22.[7][8] Version 1.1 was released sometime in July or August[9], 1.2 in March 2010[10], and the final 1.3 revision between March and April 2011.


Discontinued

While not announced on his website, Jiggmin posted a bulletin on Blossom Server's homepage sometime between 2011-03-09 and 2011-04-11 stating that a 2.0 version would be up soon and the original would remain downloadable in the mean time, though it would no longer be officially supported.[11] However, the update was never released and Blossom's website was shut down later that year for unknown reasons.

The server is possible to set up if a user still has the files, though it's no longer possible to receive free hosting directly from Jiggmin.
