Description from the packaging.

"If it's 2 in the morning, this must be Zork. Not even Ted Koppel can keep the nation up so late." - Washington Post.

Here's the story that started it all! Written by Marc Blank and Dave Lebling, Zork is widely recognized as the classic work of interactive fiction. Nearly one million copies have been sold, making it the most popular entertainment software product ever!

Now this interactive fiction classic has joined Infocom's specially priced Solid Gold Line. Solid Gold classics are the "paperback" versions of our best selling titles, offering the complete game disk and an instruction manual containing everything you need to play. Plus, all Solid Gold titles feature on-screen hints!

Zork I beckons you into a world fraught with danger and discovery. Using all the cunning you can muster, you'll plunge far below the surface of the earth in search of the incomparable Treasures of Zork. But this is no mere treasure hunt. During your amazing journey you'll come face to face with creatures so outlandish they defy description. And you'll wander through an underground domain so vast, with so many twists and turns, it can offer you new surprises no matter how many times you explore it.

Enter the world of Master Storytellers.
Interactive fiction software from Infocom is unlike anything you've ever experienced. It's a whole new dimension in storytelling.

Think of your favorite story. Now think of the main character in that story. And imagine that you have become that character. You are standing in his shoes, in his world. You have people to meet, places to visit, and challenges to face. It's all just as vivid as anything you've ever experienced in real life. The decisions are yours... and so are the consequences.

In interactive fiction, you communicate with the story through conversational English sentences typed into your computer. The plot unfolds as you decide what to do next, drawing you into a world so involving that it taps your adrenaline as much as your intellect. With hundreds of alternatives at each step, your adventure can last for weeks and even months.

Journey to a place limited only by your imagination- the world of Infocom's interactive fiction.
