- noun MUD from a play-oriented point of view, as
opposed to one which is, say, scenario- or FE-oriented. When
you are playing MUD, you are in the game. If you say to
someone, "I'll see you in the game", it means you expect to
encounter them while playing MUD. The phrase the game is never
used adjectivally, unlike the term MUD. See also not part of
the game, real world.
- noun Technically, that which is written in MUDDLE (or
MUDDL) rather than that which is programmed to interpret it, or
that which it interprets. This actually corresponds almost
identically with sense 1, although only true addicts or programming
language hackers would probably appreciate the fact.
