Re: Scotland gets Awesome TV [Sort Zork Related-ish]

Yep, this is a real-live, honest to goodness call-in show featuring an actual human who acts like a parser as a host. :-) -EDIT- Actually...actually, now that I look at it again, everyone is calling it a sketch on something called "Limmy's Show" on Youtube. Methinks my friend in England didn't actua...

Re: Scotland gets Awesome TV [Sort Zork Related-ish]

I have some friends in Scotland and England that I've mentioned this to now, and their opinion of the show seems to be that it's a scam to take advantage of drunken insomniacs or something. Honestly, though, I kind of expect it to be that, what with it being a pay-by-the-minute phone line. Honestly,...

The article may be making fun of it, but I'll admit it to you: I want to be able to watch this regularly. The host even acts like a parser.

Re: Zork rereleases at Good Old Games (GOG.com)

Oh, wow. That's great. I need to pick that up. I can still "play" RTZ on my updated PC, but it frequently skips all of the in-game movies and just prints an error message about not being able to play the movie. I wonder if it's the version where you automatically disembark after the raft ride, or th...

Maybe they're expecting someone to cosplay and act out the wedding between Lucy Flathead and Antharia Jack.

Re: Beyond Zork endgame help please?

Are you sure it won't work at the Shady Wall, though? I recall it being doable at either entrance. Did I play a different version of the game than everyone else, or is my memory faulty?

Re: Enlightenment

Yeah, the quail joke is one of my favorite parts of the game. It pulls you along a fairly deductive line of reasoning and sets you up to walk right into the punchline. Regarding footnotes: I found the footnotes to be one of the most enjoyable parts of the game, though they can be a bit tough to real...

Re: Beyond Zork endgame help please?

If memory serves, the first mirror should either be just outside the cave or just inside the cave (note: there are actually two entrances to the cave in different parts of the game world.) The beams of light go in a straight line until they strike a surface, such as a wall. You'll want to place a ne...

Re: Enlightenment

I'm kinda surprised to learn that you've not played it yet, GL. It's been one of my favorites for years. Glad I reviewed it, then. :-)

And as for the beta, well...you'll be playing a different beta soon...

Enlightenment

I'm going to review one of the non-canon Zork games, since they're probably less well known. Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to put forth a game called Enlightenment. Enlightenment is a game set in the Zork universe and stands as an example of how a game can be simple and short while at the same ...

Re: The Zork Library in real-time 3D

I'm sorry to report that it doesn't work for me. Probably because I use dial-up.

Which is a huge shame, because I love the idea. :-)

"Chuck" Brings Zork to Prime Time

Anyone else watch the first episode of NBC's "Chuck" show? I had to watch it.  I was planning on creating my own "comedy/drama", and when I heard about Chuck I knew it would either a) Create a market for my show b) Ruin the market for my show, or c) be something different.  At the moment, it looks l...

Re: Infocom/Zork collections

I have pretty much everything I'd ever want, except I'm still missing a Zorkmid, and I'm still missing all four of the Infocomics (including the two Infocomics that relate to Zork.)

Re: Is the Zork fandom dying?

I don't think the fandom is dying.  I think the fandom is just diversifying.

I mean, Zork is my all time favorite series, ever since I first played Zork I at the age of 7.  But I need to put some time between playing through the games so that they can stay fresh each time through.
