Influenced by LambdaMOO, LPMud, and CoolMUD, both by their object-oriented design, and languages, ColdMUD was an original codebase that developed its own original language, originally termed (humorously) as C-- (which was then later forked as the non-MUD language ColdC).

ColdMUD enjoyed some popularity for a short period, and even though a considerable amount of development was done, many advancements were completed, was relatively stable, and could be compiled on a variety of operating systems, the codebase never quite reached critical mass.
