The Great Underground Empire to Become a Persistent Browser-Based Game

| | Comments (0)
Lots of browser-based, persistent, online games get announced, and we tend to ignore such announcements until the games themselves materialize. However, the staff at FI are all great fans of the Zork series, and Jolt Online Gaming says that it plans to publish Legends of Zork, a persistent online adventure set in the Zork universe. A launch date is not yet set.
Jolt Online Gaming describes the game as follows: "The Great Underground Empire has recently fallen and the land is in disarray. The Royal Treasury has been sacked. The stock market has collapsed, leading even mighty FrobozzCo International to fire employees from throughout its subsidiaries. A craze of treasure-hunting has swept through the remnants of the Great Underground Empire. The New Zork Times reports that trolls, kobolds and other dangerous creatures are venturing far from their lairs. Adventurers and monsters are increasingly coming into conflict over areas rich with loot. It's a dangerous time to be a newly-unemployed traveling salesman, but it's also a great time to try a bit of adventuring."
