Muddier Hat


the game you've always wanted to play but have never been able to log on to, MUD, has been adopted by British Telecom. Due to be unveiled at the September PCW Show, this expanded version will initially be available on a London-based Vax system handling up to 100 players. A pack to get you going will cost £20 - the good news is that the pack includes your first few hours on MUD, so the fact that you're likely to die quickly at first shouldn't be too offputting. The bad news is that it will be twice as big as Essex University's original version - all the more room to kill you in.
