No chance until 1978, when Roy Trubshaw and Richard Bartle, students of the University of Essex, created a game that looked like Colossal Cave Adventure and Zork Dungeon which allowed several players to undertake and interact together. In honor of the dungeon variant of Zork Trubshaw was released to play MUD ( multi-user dungeon ). The game was played in small networks until 1980, the University of Essex was connected to ARPANET. From modest beginnings as a side project of two students, the whole concept of MUDs took off. In the 1980s and 1990s, MUDs (and variants like MUSHes and MOOes) were the place where you wanted to play a fun and bandwidth-friendly online game.
