Zork I: The Great Underground Empire is a text adventure by Infocom, and is the first game in the Zork series.

Zork I is the first third of the original Zork which was developed on MIT's ITS operating system for the PDP-6 and PDP-10 mainframe computers, between 1977 and 1978 by MIT university students Dave Lebling, Bruce Daniels, Marc Blank, and Tim Anderson. It was shared over the ARPANET, the precursor of the Internet, however, when three of the four designers of Zork formed Infocom, it was split into three text adventure games so that it could be released commercially on the personal computer hardware of the time.

Zork I was later released for the Saturn and PlayStation with music, graphics, and sound effects. These versions were only released in Japan.
