A unique Tiny-esque MUD with its own original spin. It was a relatively unknown codebase, however, it did spawn a sequel project known as UnterMUD.

UberMUD had many curious attributes, such as a UNIX-style password file and a system that supported multiple-logins (not accounts) for the same account user (e.g. player could login their character as a wizard OR as a regular user), and employing an original language called U sometimes referred to as Ubercode or simply Ucode.

Uber seemed to be more of an experiment, while its successor UnterMUD was more evolved and appeared enjoy more success.

"UberMUD proved to my satisfaction that 90% of a MUD is redundant boring code, usually series of calls to some very simple operations." -- Marcus Ranum
