Do you want it with the original Z-machine implementation? Otherwise
just grab ZEMU and the Zork I binary, and start playing. Zork I, II and
III were made available for free downloading from Activision at one
point, so I have no qualms about sharing those files if anyone wants them.
I was merely curious. I have ZEMU (of course), and way back I did
the "proof-reading" of the documentation for you. I hope to have a few
PDP-11 systems up and running soon, and then the question arises
"what to do". ZEMU and play files is probably #1 :-)
Back to my question ... I have heard (read) several times that Infocom
released ZORK for PDP-11, but never read "I have that".
Is that software also lost forever?
