Multiplayer Zork (Ryan C. Gordon)

Someone just put up a server that lets a group of four people play Zork 1. This is not a MUD; it’s using the original release-88 Z-code file! The Z-code interpreter has been heavily hacked to do a sort of bank-switching for multiple player objects.

Access is by telnet: http://telnet//

Project explanation:



How would timers work. For example, you eat the poison apple and die 10 moves later?

Same basic principle as Guncho, right? Except much more difficult because he’s trying to use a mostly unmodified Z-Code file, rather than a specially compiled Glulx file?

Awesome! Now I just have to get some friends to join me.
The URL is telnet://
(That works in my Web browser (Brave), or running Windows’ telnet works (and lets me have lots of lines). Hyperterminal doesn’t seem to work, nor Emacs :sleepy: )

It’s meta-x telnet, come on :)

I knew that! :slight_smile: On Windows 7/Cygwin, I get a telnet ‘window’ but a message “Process not running”. Just tried it on 1 of my Raspberry Pi and it works. Hooray!
(Sorry for the delay. Only just noticed your reply.)
