You should know better. Zork originated on a PDP-10 running ITS. I first
encountered it on a TOPS-20 system, since the folks at the Dynamic Modeling
Lab ported their variant of Lisp to TENEX and TOPS-20.
It's publicly available to play on the Toad-2 at LCM, and I removed the
office hours check from the startup program years and years and year ago.
:-) :-) :-) :-) <-- for the humor-impaired.
P.S. There is also a copy of EMPIRE, though I think there's a problem under
the modern monitor. Probably would work fine on a KS running 4.1.
