Dublin-based devs Jolt Online Gaming are set to bring back Zork in a new browser MMO.

“As a complete Zork geek, I’m very proud to be releasing this title,” said Jolt boss Dylan Collins.

“Anyone who plays MMOs will definitely like to spend some time with Legends of Zork while they’re taking a break or browsing around the web. It’s very addictive.”

Zork was one of the first text adventures and an early descendant of Colossal Cave Adventure. The first version of Zork was written in 1977–1979.

Thanks, EG.
