Sun Laboratories' focus on open source projects continues to dovetail with open source community efforts, this time on the gaming front with Project Darkstar. For those of you who may not be familiar with Project Darkstar, it is a a software infrastructure designed to simplify the development and operation of massively scalable online games, virtual worlds and social networking applications, Sun's partner and active community contributor fatfoogoo, which provides in-game commerce ecosystems, announced today that it will offer micropayment software through Project Darkstar. Fatfoogoo is the first company to design commercial billing and transaction software to work explicitly with the Project Darkstar technology.
