Zork Demo is a freeware fan-created adventure game demo using the SCI engine that is an implementation of the Infocom text adventure, Zork.

Game Description

The beginning results of a tool currently under development. Eventually will be a fully-playable game.

Port of Zork to SCI.

Here's a list of what's fixed in the latest version:

  • Completely rewrote and fully implemented the Queue and QueueInterrupt functions (this is what makes the 'daemons' or 'timers' work)
  • Fixed Random() function implementation, it was generating negative numbers but code was expecting only positive ones
  • Fixed parsing of preposition 'at'
  • Fixed JigsUp (death handler) functionality - wasn't referring to correct text res # to pull the values from
  • Array-driven print functionality had their parameter values swapped
  • Fixed printing random values from text res when index contained mathematical operation (LeakDaemon)
  • Cosmetic: Changed room scripts to be named the actual room instead of 'rmXXX'
  • Fixed issue with attempting to print a single integer with the AppendMsgBuffer routine
  • Vocabulary: When a word is both a noun and an adjective, only give it the noun class. Otherwise parsing was failing under certain scenarios (this was a fun one, I'll have to do a write-up on it at some point)

Out of heap errors are less frequent too. I was able to score upwards of 150 points in this version before the game crashed on me.

Zork: The Great Underground Empire is a freeware fan-created adventure game demo using the SCI engine.

Game Description

Whereas the Zork Demo was a port of the classic Zork to SCI as a text adventure, this is a remake of Zork, turning it into a point-and-click game adventure game.

The full game has not been implemented yet, but it's pretty polished and the player is able to score 45 total points.
