Zork I

Zork I

Zork was one of the first adventure games created. It was created by MIT university students who had played Colossal Cave Adventure. The game, originally called Dungeon, was split into three parts for microcomputers because they didn't have the memory available at the time to play the entire game. The game was renamed Zork because Dungeons & Dragons enforced their trademark for games with the word dungeon in them.

The game was released for the Saturn and Playstation with music, graphics, and sound effects. These versions were only released in Japan.
