- What is MOO?
- From the LambdaMOO Programmer's Manual:
MOO is a network-accessible, multi-user, programmable, interactive
system well-suited to the construction of text-based adventure games,
conferencing systems, and other collaborative software. Its most common use,
however, is as a multi-participant, low-bandwidth virtual reality.
-- Pavel Curtis
- Great, but what is MOO really?
- It's a server
you can connect to with a client program
and chat real-time with other people. It's more than just chat, though; the
server's database contains a whole virtual world you can walk around in and
build upon, and MOO is highly programmable.
The best way to learn is to grab a client program, find yourself a
MOO and login and look around.
