Legends of Zork Browser Game

Jolt Online Gaming announces a return to the land of Zork in Legends of Zork, a browser-based game based on Infocom's classic series of text-based adventures. The project doesn't yet have a set launch date, but they are getting set to launch beta testing, and are fostering discussion of the project in the Legends of Zork Forums. Here's a bit:
The Great Underground Empire has recently fallen and the land is in disarray. The Royal Treasury has been sacked. The stock market has collapsed, leading even mighty FrobozzCo International to fire employees from throughout its subsidiaries. A craze of treasure-hunting has swept through the remnants of the Great Underground Empire. The New Zork Times reports that trolls, kobolds and other dangerous creatures are venturing far from their lairs. Adventurers and monsters are increasingly coming into conflict over areas rich with loot. It's a dangerous time to be a newly-unemployed traveling salesman, but it's also a great time to try a bit of adventuring.

LegendsofZork.com will provide online gamers with a persistent online adventure, playable from any Internet browser. Players take up the role of a recently laid-off salesman and part-time loot-gatherer, as he explores the Great Underground Empire. Designed to provide gamers with a casual MMO game they can play on their laptop, desktop or Apple iPhone (in school, work or on the bus), there’s nothing to download, just go to www.legendsofzork.com.

Have you played Sonny 2 yet? It's FFVII in a window, and it's freaking me out how close it is to the real thing.

PC games aren't in trouble from consoles, PC games are in trouble from Adobe.

Wow. I guess the browser-based game thing might amount to something.

If you had read you'd see its a browser based MMO based upon Zork. Doubt its fully text based but probably partially text based. They said laptop, desktop or iPhone.

Is this just the original Zork done in a web-browser? The text adventure? Or is this a squeal with graphics and such? Cause the first has long been done:
