Interview for MUD Connection, 1995, of Giovanni Ruffini (Steppin)
I play here because it was the first MUD I ever played, and I fell in love with it conceptually within minutes. I've tried dozens of MUDs but have always come back to this one because it is the only one that I log onto and feel comfortable, almost right away. This is because I know its history, I know its code, and I know its geography inside and out. I can be any place in the game and know exactly where I am in relation to everything else; this is a wonderful feeling, one I wish could be found in real life more often, and one that would take months of work to recapture on a different MUD.
