What is Mudlet?
Mudlet is a platform for gaming and enhancing game-play primarily with MUDs.
Mudlet provides a toolkit and supports a wide variety of protocols for players and creators to tailor an immersive game-playing experience. MUD creators can use Mudlet to add visual flair or build features into their text games. MUD players can utilize the Mudlet toolkit to script and automate parts of their gameplay or add their own visual customization for game data.
Outside the realm of MUD games, Mudlet has even been used to provide automation and features in 3D games which support in-game chat and a Telnet or similar server-console protocols.
What are MUDs?
A MUD (/ˈmʌd/; originally Multi-User Dungeon, with later variants Multi-User Dimension and Multi-User Domain), is a multiplayer real-time virtual world, usually text-based. MUDs combine elements of role-playing games, hack and slash, player versus player, interactive fiction, and online chat. Players can read or view descriptions of rooms, objects, other players, non-player characters, and actions performed in the virtual world. Players typically interact with each other and the world by typing commands that resemble a natural language. – Wikipedia
