A river of words flowed between us.
Zork was one of the earliest interactive fiction text computer games, with roots drawn from the original genre game, Colossal Cave Adventure. The first version of Zork was written in 1977–1979 using the MDL programming language on a DEC PDP-10 computer. The authors Tim Anderson, Marc Blank, Bruce Daniels, and Dave Lebling were members of the MIT Dynamic Modelling Group.
