ICHEG Acquires M.U.L.E. Creator Bunten's Historical Artifacts

The International Center for the History of Video Games (ICHEG) at the Strong National Museum of Play in New York has obtained a collection of notes and papers documenting the career of gaming industry pioneer Dani Bunten Berry (Dan Bunten). Bunten, a Hall of Fame inductee at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, created the landmark multiplayer strategy title M.U.L.E. for computer platforms in 1983. Bunten was also involved in the development of titles such as Robot Rascals, Heart of Africa, and Cartels & Cutthroats. The papers were donated to ICHEG by Bunten's children, who have formed a company dedicated to Bunten's legacy, "It is a privilege to have our dad's work at a place that truly understands what 'play' is all about and our dad would be humbled and honored," said Bunten's daughter, Melanie Bunten Stark. The Bunten donation follows ICHEG's recent acquisition of a collection of personal notes belonging to SimCity creator Will Wright. ICHEG plans to display both collections at Strong's upcoming eGameRevolution interactive exhibit.
