I mentioned, weeks ago now, that a free-to-play and browser based Zork game was in production. Well, now it’s ready for you to play! I’ve given it a brief playthrough and it seems decent enough.
By the admission of the development team, this is not a hardcore Zork adventure. What Legends is, however, is a nice casual game that can slot into any free time you have. You seem to get 30 action points a day, which is rather a lot I think, with which to expore the strange and beautiful world of Zork. Best of all, though, is that unlike a great many other browser games I’ve played Legends has an onscreen tutorial to introduce you to whatever it is you are supposed to do. It plays like your typical browser RPG but with pretty pictures, decent writing, and a battle screen that slowly unveils how you’re doing so that the battles have a little more impact than BAM! – text. All in all, pretty decent.
You can give it a go here. Look me up, I’m playing as Tybald Praun.
