About the Story

"Dragons. Demons. Undead. An adventurer's perils are many. But in the world of MUDs, nothing is more dangerous than electronic sex... "You Are Here" is a short, simple diversion promoting "MultiUserDungeon", a multimedia theatre production of a new award-winning play, opening November in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. (For details, see http://www.multiuserdungeon.ca .) While characters and situations from the play make an appearance, the game does stand alone." [--blurb from Competition Aught-One]

Editorial Reviews

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

[U]ntil I find out otherwise (and given that the game provided no walkthrough, it may be a while), my verdict stands: a clever, interesting game (especially for a promotional work), flawed by some minor errors, a serious design weakness, and a false claim [that it is impossible to get stuck].

A game based on a play about a MUD, July 16, 2017

Related reviews: about 1 hour

In this game, you are in a MUD (like a text version of World of Warcraft). You have to join a beginner quest and complete it.

The game has several entertaining characters. It contains an in-game hint system that makes sense.

I found some bugs related to attempting to do things twice (like after dying).

The game seems to hint at some risque business, but there's nothing really like that (at least not explicitly).
