Return to Zork

This is like some really old text based games that friends used to get into while I pursued more visual games. I never got the charm because at the time they were such a dated concept. In this day and age the play style of the game and lack of visuals is welcome because it's about strategy more than reflexes. Reminds me of Dope Wars or other interested and extremely playable games.

The emotional attachment you have with this is enough that I've deleted the game on almost every sniper kill, only to reinstall just to find out what comes next. It's a serious love hate relationship that develops rather quickly.

Only thing I would change is to force the player to read things when travelling as it’s easy to click through and ignore the hidden meanings

Surprisingly rich

The first time I tried to play this game, I unfairly dismissed it in frustration and didn't take the time to enjoy every aspect of it. As it turns out, this was anticipated by the developers which I found out only after coming back to the game, restarting and finishing it. The minimalistic approach to gameplay is easy to conflate with a lack of depth, but only if you do as I did and give it no chance to engage you.
The gameplay is simplistic, yet varies (and for the better) as the game progresses, another thing which will simply go unknown if you give up without even trying.
A brilliant experience with shockingly deep levels of atmosphere, narrative, and development bundled into a minimalist display.

You are not being scammed.


This game doesn't have a single picture, and that's what makes it so amazing and unique. A whole game is just built almost entirely on text and various buttons. Even though nothing much was displayed on the screen, so much was going on inside my head while playing this game. It almost felt weird looking at the screen after a while and seeing how simplistic it actually is.

A great and very unique experience, different from any traditional game I've ever played.
