RacketBoy recently posted an excellent article on the history and impact of the classic computer game, "M.U.L.E.".
I think this is Dave's (a member of the podcast) favorite game of all time. We recently hooked up a C64 at work, and he plays intermittently throughout the day. M.U.L.E. is one of the games that seems to truly stand the test of time.
The author of M.U.L.E. Dan/Dani Bunten also created the masterpiece, "The Seven Cities of Gold" that is a key part of our upcoming podcast ( #18 ).
