Game: Zork

This is an online version of a VERY old RPG game from the company Infocom. It is a completely text based game, decribing your surroudings and situations through written word rather the graphics. Commands are simple 2 word (but sometimes more) commands such as 'Climb Tree', or 'Move Rug'. The game is not easy and it won't be for everyone...but the fact remains...without Zork and other games like it in their time, we'd likely not have seen games like Final Fantasy when we did.

Move over Virtual Bartender...I had posted this on the blog a couple months ago, but the link had gone dead. (Actually, it had moved and I did not get around to changing it). I had already killed the old post, so rather than go back and restore it, I figured I'd just repost it altogether.
