I understand fully that this review will possibly only to serve to bring more people into NaughtyMuffin simply to see what the buzz is about, as I'm sure many would be curious about a MU* of this nature, just like I was. I don't libel this game because there's some good stuff here, there's some not-so-good.
NM's design is very good, and it's obvious the creators/maintainers of this game have a great deal of creativity and work hard to make the MU*. Any staff member that I spoke to was very polite, and very helpful, also they were in no way arrogant. If a staffmember didn't know the answer to a question, they made sure to find it for you. Also, the level of selection for different things in NM was very diverse. In short, the exterior of NM is where it shines, and it's admin staff is very efficient. However, from therein, NM is like a noose: the more it closes in, the worse it becomes.
My major complaint would be a large number of the players themselves. The majority of the female characters are played by men, and while this is no crime, they are *exceedingly* rude to male, hetero players. Unfortunately, many female characters who are played by females are just as bad, if not worse. These female players, can actually be categorized as 'man haters', they are simply that rude and some of their opinions of men are evident even through the characters they play.
For the male player, NM CAN be (though not always) unfriendly and even hostile. For a largely 'anything goes' environment where people aren't to judge each other, hetero men are quickly singled out for even the smallest 'infraction' that other players will easily look the other way with for a female player. Point blank, this game is geared towards lesbians, and while I did enjoy myself for awhile, the angst and general dislike towards men quickly turned me off.
I honestly believe the staff would like to change this situation, but the players have no qualms with the situation so a change is unlikely. This is my opinion and review, each is entitled to their own. To the hetero male player, however...it's not what you think.
