Legends of Zork: Classic Series Turned Browser-Based MMO

Irish developer Jolt Online Gaming has revealed plans to revive classic computer game series Zork as a browser-based massively multiplayer online game creatively dubbed Legends of Zork.

Legends of Zork, which is being published by Activision, is currently in beta with no official release date yet disclosed. Prospective players can join the beta at the game’s official website, as well as sign up for automated updates on Legends’ development status.

Zork players will recall how addictive the game was all those decades ago, so merging that classic gameplay with the innate draw of an MMO is a stroke of genius. I can’t see Legends supplanting the pillars of the genre (World of Warcraft, Warhammer Online, etc), but this could very well be the next big workplace distraction, assuming it isn’t eaten by a grue.
