After three titles for SSI, Bunten, who by then had founded a software company called Ozark, caught the
attention of Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins. M.U.L.E. was Bunten's first game for EA, originally
published for the Atari 8-bit family because the Atari 800 had four controller ports. Bunten later ported it
to the Commodore 64. While its sales — 30,000 units — were not high, the game developed a cult
following and was widely pirated. The game setting was inspired by the novel Time Enough for
Love by Robert A. Heinlein.[4]
Bunten wanted to follow up M.U.L.E. with a game that would have been similar to the later
game Civilization, but after fellow Ozark Softscape partners balked at the idea, Bunten followed with The
Seven Cities of Gold, which proved popular because of its simplicity
