Zork /zork/ n. 

 The second of the great early experiments
in computer fantasy gaming; see ADVENT.  Originally written
on MIT-DM during 1977-1979, later distributed with BSD Unix (as a
patched, sourceless RT-11 FORTRAN binary; see retrocomputing)
and commercialized as `The Zork Trilogy' by Infocom.  The
FORTRAN source was later rewritten for portability and released to
Usenet under the name "Dungeon".  Both FORTRAN "Dungeon" and
translated C versions are available at many FTP sites.  See also
