Many people think this game was an early version of RuneScape. This isn't true in many senses. However RuneScape did originate from it and they were very similar. It was made and then scrapped after two weeks. Then Andrew Gower made RuneScape Classic based upon DeviousMUD. However they were different. It also had a brother program called CunningMOD.
There were two versions which were:
- DeviousMUD (Alpha)- The first version that was never released to the public as Andrew Gower felt it wasn't ready yet.
- DeviousMUD (Beta)- The second version which was released publicly for about a week before Andrew Gower scrapped it.
