While it may be painfully obvious that I’m a fan of Zork, (notice the title of the site? I got the Grue from zork), it appears that I’m not the only one who values it so highly. Marc Blank and Dave Lebling, shown above, have earned the Pioneer Award for their work.
Wired has carried out an interesting interview with Dave Lebling, but you have to explore it on their site, in the format of a text adventure. That’s right, you just have to give it a try to see how it works.
