VOTE / BE HEARD: M.U.L.E ----> Yes or No

by mjmjr25 Mon Oct 28, 2013 12:04 pm

Fast / Ack / Racket have suggested M.U.L.E. be one of the games for TR in 2014.

Should we play M.U.L.E. as a site / club founders proposal.

If the support isnt there, it's hardly a 'Together' Retro. I vote no.

A fair enough assessment. However the founding core of TR was to not only play good games you may have missed but also historically relevant games in a variety of genres. While MULE is a historically relevant game , it almost single handedly created the economic sim genre, it is also a fantastic multiplayer game, that the majority of gamers have probably never heard of let alone played. Heck even industry greats give it credit: Will Wright stated it was a primary influence for The Sims and Miyamoto said it was one of hte driving factors to make Pikmin.

That said, it is up to the masses for if it will be played. So vote.

If it does manage to get itself on the roster, I'll happy as long as it gets more discussion then the dire month where we supposedly played Populous.

It might help some decisions along if it were mentioned what platforms/services this is available for.
