This is an experiment in turning Zork 1 into a multiplayer game. Up to four players can explore the Great Underground Empire at the same time, interacting with the world together or apart.
Sometimes this introduces new solutions to puzzles. Sometimes it breaks the game in hilarious ways.
You need a telnet client and some friends.
Telnet to multizork.icculus.org, start a game and tell your friends the access code.
From a command line prompt, type "
telnet multizork.icculus.org " … you might already have one! If not:
- On Windows: install PuTTY.
- On Linux and macOS: just use netcat! Type "
nc multizork.icculus.org 23"
