So, I’m apparently behind the times, because what? I guess Activision doesn’t own the Infocom label any more?
In this position you will be provided with the source code for a proprietary assembler that consists of slightly under 4,000 lines of code. The source code you will study was written in assembly language to run on the TOPS-20 operating system on the PDP-10 mainframe computer. You will need know this assembly language or be willing to learn. It is likely that you will need to install an emulator to run TOPS-20 and to build and run the assembler so as to further study the software. Candidates that already have this knowledge are preferred but it is acknowledged that such people can be difficult to find for such legacy systems.
Their Twitter feed has been around since 2017?
Who are these people? Is it someone we know?
Are they trying to deconstruct original Dungeon/Zork, then sell an enhanced copy while avoiding any copyright Activision still has to Zork itself? (The Zork games are all still on gog.com and go on sale pretty regularly.)
