Re: Return To Zork Different Endings/Versions?

Very interesting! I've only seen the regular CD version. I didn't realize that the Reelmagic version didn't have the instrumental music and that more of the scenes had video. I assumed everything was the same but the videos were a little higher quality. Do you own the Reelmagic version? Is it possib...

Re: Zork and Windows 8

Great! I haven't tried the DVD version of ZGI lately with ZEngine. Last time I tried it, it kept crashing on me with the DVD version of the game. I'll have to try it again soon.

Re: Playing Zork Nemesis on linux.

Sorry about the delay in responding. I see you asked the question over at the Zengine Github site. I responded over there. For reference, that can be found at https://github.com/Marisa-Chan/Zengine/issues/20 . For others who may experience this issue, make sure your Zork.dir file for Zengine is usin...

Kickstarters for Zork-like adventures

Lately, kickstarter and indiegogo have been taking the world of game development by storm. I thought it would be good to feature some games currently crowdfunding that share some qualities with Zork. Here's one game from Kickstarter and one from Indiegogo that I think you might be interested in. htt...

I found this via Woot. Tanga is selling a Zork t-shirt for $5.55 + $1.99 shipping right now. It's on sale, so I'm not sure how long this price will last. I just ordered one myself.

Re: Lost Treasures of Infocom RE-RELEASED!

I tweeted at the developer asking about Android support and they seem to be hinting that it is coming.

Re: Lost Treasures of Infocom RE-RELEASED!

Wow, that came out of nowhere! I really like the look of the virtual feelies and box as well as the visual interface with invisiclues. I'd get this but I don't have an iOS device. If this comes to Android, I'll definitely get it. Here's a direct iTunes link so people don't need to search: https://it...

Re: Zork: Prototype, Demo of future Zork game!

Wow! That was great! I really enjoyed it. You got it all working really quick. I'd love to see more of this. The graphics look good too. The mouse panning speed felt a little too quick for me, but it was definitely playable. I think your plans to support many platforms and make a game in the style o...

Re: Welcome & The Future of Zork Game

That looks great! I like how you're using a cursor similar to the one from ZGI, since that's my favorite of the series. Being a software developer myself, I'm curious to hear more about the technology behind this. I know you said the demo will run on Windows, but can you go into what tools and libra...
