Legend of Zork: Grue

  20 Estuary 2009 - Here you are your invite for a new tripo into the GUE!

The Great Underground Empire has recently fallen and the land is in disarray.
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. Itís a dangerous time to be a newly-unemployed traveling salesman, but itís also a great time to try a bit of adventuring.

  14 Estuary 2009 - LoZ Team welcome you adventurer!

From the official blog:

"Fight Bloodworms in the Jungles of Miznia, visit G.U.E. Tech for some magical training, or just hang out at Port Foozle. The familiar White House is the starting point for your adventures, but Legends of Zork will let you wander throughout the world first made famous almost thirty years ago.

You play a recently fired FrobozzCo travelling salesman who finds that he and other unfortunates have been reduced to venturing into the most exotic corners of the land in search of zorkmids.

Gain experience and wealth as you battle creatures, dodge traps and solve puzzles. The game is designed to be played at your own pace, so you can log in and do some exploring whenever you feel like it. Achieve fame by challenging other players in the arena or form a group to take on some of the more difficult quests.

The card game Double Fanucci also makes an appearance, in the form of a full deck of 174 Fanucci cards that you can collect and use to improve your skills. Experiment with different combinations to find the ideal configuration. Enchanted Fanucci cards can be found in some of the most dangerous locations, but having the right stack of cards can make a real difference in a tough fight.

Well, finally I found a "good" photo of the old Zork I poster realized by David Ardito for Infocom. I dunno if there have been colorized posters even for Zork II and III, I never seen 'em on Internet.
Anyway, give a look at the Galleries section to see the pics!
