PROJECT: philly_mud AUTHOR: Sean T. McBeth (email@example.com) DATE: 9/20/2011 DESCRIPTION: philly_mud is a basic Multi-User Dungeon/Dimension/Domain written in PLT Racket, a dialect of Scheme. It serves as a test-bed project for me to learn Scheme in a more directed and meaningful way. I hate how programming tutorials always show these ridiculous examples that are completely devoid of context. It's all "foo" this and "bar" that, disconnecting concept from context. I believe this to be both unnecessary and foolish. GOALS: 1. Learn Scheme 2. Bring the MUD form to a new generation 3. Let other people participate in its creation 4. Make something about the things I love about Philadelphia LINKS: You can get PLT Racket here: http://racket-lang.org/ It's very thorough, if somewhat obtuse, documentation starts here: http://docs.racket-lang.org/ If you're new to programming, you probably want to start here: http://docs.racket-lang.org/quick/index.html But otherwise, if you're a long-time programmer who is just new to Racket, you would probably prefer to start here: http://docs.racket-lang.org/guide/index.html I'm not going to link you to any particular MUDs. The ones I used to play are no longer running, and the ones that are still running are not very accessible. However, I would suggest playing the original Zork: http://pot.home.xs4all.nl/infocom/zork1.html Imagine "now add other people" and that should give you an idea of how these sorts of games go.
