Sorry for the short-ish notice. This is our second attempt at an IF
playing group to complement our IF writing group.
The People’s Republic of Interactive Fiction Presents: ZORK
July 25th, 2 - 5 pm
MIT Campus: Bulding 66 Room 480.
Come and play Zork where it all started. We will be venturing together into the dungeons of the Great Underground Empire.
Inspired by Adventure / Colossal Cave, Zork was one of the first text adventure games, developed by a team of students at MIT back in 1977 on a PDP-10. If you’ve never played a text adventure game, this is your chance to experience the joys of playing through the command prompt by joining others in the adventure. If you’re an old Zork hand, help us track down in-jokes and historic references.
Also, we’ll be trying to broadcast the session on Ustream:
Due to the non-existence of a projector at the previous room, we’ve acquired a new room at MIT for this event. We’ll be playing in Building 1 Room 135. This will obviously not affect the streaming video.
