    This paper is an exploration into the development of a generic framework for online multiplayer mobile phone games. This paper starts by thoroughly researching the core technology powering mobile phone games. Potential business models are identified and put forward. These concepts are combined with new and innovative ideas to create a generic design artefact. This design is applied to the process of implementing a series of components that form the foundation of the proposed framework. The development is tested and evaluated from many different angles. The general outcome of this project has been a positive and rewarding experience. As an extra incentive, a potential journal article accompanying this paper, reinforces some of the most interesting design concepts and business models explored in this paper. The artefact CD-ROMs accompanying this document contain all of the developed artefacts and most of the source code. The only exception to this is the core game engine code because of its potential commercial application. Nonetheless it is envisaged that reading this paper and studying the attached material will provide an excellent starting point for further research projects.
