Re: Hardcore Gaming 101: Zork Article

I just wanted to chime in and say that I really like the sound of this. I've been considering buying this book for a while, but haven't yet. Do you know how the Kindle edition looks? I imagine it's fine since the images aren't huge and they're black and white. I have a Nook and was hoping this book ...

Re: Nemesis

Sorry, I'd prefer people not trade torrent links here for the games. There are legal means to get these games for relatively cheap.

Zork Wiki

As some of you may be aware, there's a Zork Wiki available on Wikia. I'd like to contribute to it, but I haven't found the time. That said, I'd like to encourage the use of that wiki more to build up a good Zork reference on the internet. I'm considering adding a link to the Zork Wiki in the "Books ...

Re: Hey everyone! How's everything?

I haven't tried Utopia Kingdoms as I'm not that interested in those types of games. I mainly played LoZ because it was Zork themed. Those numbers are pretty weak though. I'm surprised they're not doing better on Facebook. These types of games all work on feedback loops to get players coming back oft...

Re: Zork Nemesis and Zork Grand Inquisitor on Linux with Win

Wow, that's really impressive. I looked into developing my own implementation of the Z-engine in the past, but couldn't find any good documentation on it and I didn't have the time to reverse engineer it. I'll grab a copy of your code from your git repo and try it out soon (hopefully this weekend). ...

Zork Grand Inquisitor has now been released by GOG: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/zork_grand_inquisitor

It includes a digital copy of the manual and something called a "Zork chronologue". Since this is my favorite Zork game, I plan to buy this soon.

Re: Legends of Zork is no more...

I hadn't kept up with Legends of Zork much over the past year or so. There was a dungeon planned? Now that would have been something that might have made me play it more.

It's too bad. I've been playing a little again this weekend. Hopefully Activision will do something else with Zork soon.
