Confessions of a MUD Creator - Renegade Outpost DIKU MUD
June 8, 2011
One of the first places I started my gaming career was back in 1,991 at the University of Texas at Austin. My best friend from, 7th grade, and I created a game in college that still exists today.
In 1,991 my friend and I created a MUD called 'Renegade Outpost'. A very popular MUD and was used as a roadmap for Ultima Online and Everquest. This is the grandfather of the modern MMORPG.
Join me for a completely self indulgent trip down memory lane. Hear from a MUD develepor and some of the stories that were RO's humble beginnings. RO peaked with 30, 000 accounts and was played by members of the Pentagon, top people from IBM and Apple, and college students in the 90's.
