MUD is not a MUD. It’s inspired in part by MUDs, but the game itself is meant as an open world crafting sandbox driven by player choice and so forth. You know, like the other voxel-based sandbox titles you’ve seen on Kickstarter. This particular game isn’t selling its Kickstarter on those merits, focusing instead on the idea that the game is a hybrid between Minecraft and the MUDs of yesteryear.
A Steam Greenlight campaign has already succeeded for the game, complete with a trailer just below showing off a bit of the world in motion. A persistent and universal online world for the game is among its stretch goals, although at $1.5 million that might be a bit unrealistic. Still, you can take a look at the Kickstarter and decide for yourself.
