Zork is a series of three text adventures from the 1980s.

  • You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.
  • Famous first line

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a Grue.

The trap door crashes shut, and you hear someone barring it.

This is part of a maze of twisty little passages, all alike.

Suddenly, the rainbow appears to become solid and, I venture, walkable (I think the giveaway was the stairs and bannister).

>Drink Water

Thank you very much. I was rather thirsty (from all this talking, probably).

>Eat garlic

What the heck! You won't make any friends this way, but nobody around here is to friendly anyhow. Gulp!

>pray

If you pray enough, your prayers may be answered.

>jump

Very good. Now you can go to the second grade. [Or] Wheeeeeee!!!!! [Or] Do you expect me to applaud?

>shit

Such language in a high-class establishment like this!

>hello sailor

A hollow voice says "Fool".
