Several new media theorists use mudding amongst others to think about
identity and the relationship between identity-body.

Personally, I am interested in the implications of mudding for
narrative: is mudding a form of interactive narrative? I would like to
link it to categories from narratology, but it might go to far to
explain that here.

I found, while playing around with Moo, that setting descriptions for
rooms, exits objects and verbs, the 'programmer' influences character
description. 

I was basically wondering how these things work in other type of
programming languages. But since i am not a real programmer, I find it
hard to be more specific.
