Zork is a classic fiction based interactive game built in the 1980s, brought to Cisco Spark room with the Zork bot

Who remembers playing Zork ?? It was one of the greatest interactive fiction based games in the 1980s. Now you can play Zork I, II and III in a Cisco Spark Room with the Zork bot. Type help or @zork help (in a group room) to get some detailed instructions on how to play the game. Zork has a very interactive and intelligent parsing engine. You do not have to type commands in a specific fashion. It does not have to be total verb-nouns like "hit troll" "open mailbox" etc. You can say "take the knife and put it in the bag" etc. If you have not ever played Zork, the game does provide you with clues and tells you where you are, where you can go etc (north, west, east, south etc). The game also tells you your current score, current location and current number of moves you made versus max (999).

Before start playing the game type help or @zork help to read through the detailed help. If you are in a group room, make sure you @mention the bot. In group rooms, you can play with a friend the same game, so both parties can type commands over time. The game state is always saved per room, so there is no overlap between each instance of game spawned.

Lets go kill some Grue!!
