Amazingly enough, in this day and age there are still some people creating moo/mud-like virtual worlds.
This year’s (2008) April’s fools day Guncho was introduced (announcement here).
It is located at
guncho.game-host.org 4108 and you can create your own character at http://cp.guncho.com/.
The wiki with all the info about the “game” is at http://wiki.guncho.com/.
The concept is interesting enough: any player can create realms for others to play in and the goal is essentially to implement a virtual reality base for people to create their interactive fiction with others.
Yes, it’s been done a long time ago on many a MU[D|OO|SH]. Still, the fact that nowadays someone actually created something like this with only a text interface intrigues me deeply.
I plan to take a closer look at this virtual world and if it turns out to be as interesting as it sounds, I’ll be taking some notes here.
