ZORK was created at the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science, by Tim
Anderson, Marc Blank, Bruce Daniels, and Dave Lebling. It was inspired
by the ADVENTURE game of Crowther and Woods, and the long tradition of
fantasy and science fiction adventure. ZORK was originally written in
MDL (alias MUDDLE).
The current version was translated from MDL into Inform by Ethan Dicks
