By 1994, over 400 of these MUD servers existed, but by that time, a new method of online chat had also been created.

Internet relay chat (Also known as IRC) was created by accident in 1988 by yet another college student named Jarkko Oikarinen.

The original intention of this system was to extend a page for University of Oulu Finland called BBS.

Although the insurance company didn't grow as vastly as had originally been hoped, the greatness of this program was realized a year later by H&R Block.

This company would later buy the site, and unlike the first owner, H&R Block had the money to fund the program in order to enhance it to it's full potential.

This company (like MUD) also saw the attraction and opportunity in creating gaming with the new idea of Internet chat, and integrated the two together in their creation of Play NET.

Play NET had an extensive amount of games, such as chess, in which the players could talk to each other while partaking in the game with people around the world.

The server was only used during specific hours of the day because of the initial games' location on a college website, but when the MUD game was useable, the servers were always full to the maximum capacity.

Other Internet users noticed the widespread implementation of this system, and began creating their own MUD servers.

This revolutionary invention is one that has benefited society in ways that are incomprehensible to those who don't utilize it themselves.
