Legends of Zork

Anybody heard this? On page 28 of the latest Game Informer magazine, it mentions that a Dublin-based company, Jolt Online Gaming, is working on a persistent browser-based (by which I assume they mean web-based – an important distinction unless it really will be an HTML game) Zork. Release date: unknown.

I remember a couple of posts cropping up about this on Planet IF a while back.

The site’s here, and Rock, Paper, Shotgun did a post here.

I don’t really think they’re doing much except cashing in on the name.

Well, with the backing of Activision at least they have a leg up on the typical coattail-rider. That’s something.
