While looking at the Steam summer sale, I decided to go and look up a few older games that I loved when I was younger. The game that I decided to look up first was the Zork Anthology. As I already have all the games with the graphic, I decided to take a look the text adventure game again and consider adding it to my collection. However, what I found instead had me jumping for joy.
Update: The game name has since been changed to 3D Infocom Game 1 Part 1 as of September 2019.
I discovered that someone was created a Zork Remake! A indie developer that goes by Ariel Love from the company Infocom Remakes has decided to take the original game of Zork 1, a text based game, and bringing to life the virtual world of Zork.
Well, as of May 9th, my prayers have been answered and the developers of this remake are about half way done with the game! They have also released a short demo on Steam for everyone to play! I had to play this demo to see how it plays out. I have already played a portion of the original game, which kind of helped me understand what I needed to find or how to play the game in the beginning, but I'm always ready for an adventure!

When it comes to the graphics of Unity, I have to say they are amazing as it makes everything so life like. Small little details such as the chirping birds as well as the birds flying in the sky above. I absolutely love little details like this.

Due to this being an indie developer I would have loved to add their social media and other information to this post, however I could not find any.
Thank you everyone for reading. I'm super excited about this remake and I can't wait for them to release the full version of this game. Down below, I have linked the Stream page where you can play the demo yourself! If you've play the demo, tell me what you think in the comments down below. I would love to know what you though of the little snippet we were given.
