AT MUD-DEV CONFERENCE.
the GDC (Game Developer's Conference) in San Jose in March, our Larry
Dunlap one of ILG's founders and the author of Imperial Wars was invited
to the MUD-Dev conference to explain the differences between an Episodic
Metagame and the Massively Multiplayer Game. The MUD-Dev is actually
a newsletter produced by JT Lawrence, who hosted
this parallel conference during GDC, whose members include all of
the designers, developers, artists and writers who are involved with
the online game industry. As the seminal MUDs (Multi-User Dungeon)
were morphed into the 3D graphical persistent worlds we know now,
almost all of the top online game builders still have their roots
in this world and attended the MUD-Dev dinner the night before and
the day's activities that followed.
