Zork

Zork

The original Zork interactive fiction text adventure game written at MIT in 1979 for an early mainframe computer.

The programmers who created Zork went on to found Infocom where they expanded Zork and released it in three parts as Zork I, Zork II and Zork III.

The original MIT Zork is in the public domain so I can post it here. Zork I-III and the other Infocom games are copyright by Activision, which acquired Infocom, and will not be published here.

Zork is running in : Craig Setera’s open source ZeeME Zcode interpreter for Java ME. Unlike the Mini Zork I posted earlier, the Inventory command works in this Zork version.
