Re: Zork Wiki

;D Hey Kevin, thanks for the info. I wish I had more time to dedicate to the Zork Wiki. There are a handful of things that can only be done by an admin, and that is to rejuvenate it and make it look more interesting. What MoffRebus says is true but only to certain extent, like I explained. He wants ...

Re: Hey everyone! How's everything?

Thanks that line should read: "Which means LoZ had more fans even near it's end, dropping to a sad (record low) of about 368 (new) users per month in April 2011 (total of about 4,000 existing users per month)." I forgot to add that little detail. I changed the message in Facebook. In April it had 5k...

Re: Hey everyone! How's everything?

Sorry for taking so long to respond, but in order to do all the research I do, it can take some time. I posted the original to the Facebook page notes, since Facebook allows the use of images freely. Please take into consideration I wasn't able to find some sources I had visited before, because they...

Re: Hey everyone! How's everything?

:-\ How unfortunate, the page is not available as of today! Here is the cache page though: Cache from Bing and Cache from Google . I hope they don't become obsolete. And by the way it has not been a year since then, Utopia Kingdom was released in Facebook in Dec 2010, so it is much less than 1 year ...

Hey everyone! How's everything?

Has anyone checked the popularity of the "fairly new" Utopia Kingdoms and overall Jolt Online outcome after the closure of Legends of Zork? I have... Anyone who wants to see, here it is. Please keep in mind that a company like "Zynga" (for example) has over 200mil monthly active users (MAU), so 62 t...

Re: Development idea

Sadly the Zork hype has died down in the past 15 years or so. Equally the one for text based games (some people like me for example were never too fond of the text based). A game like the one you speak of, will most likely attract the older audience or true die hard Zork fans. I am a semi-die-hard f...

Re: Zorkmid Coin

A zorkmid, what a beauty! If I had a permanent place I'd love to, but I've always been sort of a drifter, moving from one place to the next; so can't guarantee the safety of it once I get it. But I hope you can make someone happy around here. =/

Re: Legends of Zork is no more...

I really can't believe that Jolt messed up so bad. Really, the first official game of Zork since 1997, that's 12 years! How can they mess it up this bad? The game itself needed much improvement BUT finishing the release of those two fanucci cards would have been a great improvement. That alone would...

Re: Double Fanucci: Face Cards

Well now that the game is closing, they decided to reveal the true values of face cards. By the way, Jester and Grue were unreleased all along, they were going to be introduced in a quest that never took place. http://forums.joltonline.com/showthread.php?615395-Face-card-values-and-missing-cards Fac...

Re: I don't understand....

I saw the introduction of the links at the top, it's a great addition! I've only contacted MoffRebus a few times http://zork.wikia.com/wiki/User:MoffRebus.

Re: Zork Re-release coming soon to GOG.com

I think I'm just trying to remain positive about it. I just hope there are enough loyal Zork players to order and make a point to Activision. I must have mentioned a few times before, I have no interest for ANY Activision game currently. All I want is for them to bring Zork back (in a new game), the...

Re: Zork Re-release coming soon to GOG.com

I've worked in the Zork wiki, I wrote a few articles there last year. Fortunately it helped supply the compendium with a few pieces of information about Legends of Zork, coming from a person (me) who has brought 5 characters over level 44; I have studied most of the lore from that particular version...
