Welcome to the world of Infocom's interactive fiction! This Sampler contains an
interactive fiction Tutorial and excerpts from four Infocom titles: Zork I,
Planetfall, Infidel, and The Witness.
The Tutorial introduces you to the concept of interactive fiction. In it,
you'll be taken through a brief sample scenario. You'll learn how to
communicate with the story and pick up tips for solving the types of puzzles
you'll encounter in the excerpts.
The excerpt from Zork I, Infocom's classic fantasy story, includes your
discovery of the ancient caverns of the Great Underground Empire. In the sample
of Planetfall, a science fiction comedy, you'll find yourself stranded on a
deserted alien planet. In Infidel, a challenging Tale of Adventure, you'll be
taken to the heart of the Egyptian desert, where you'll search for a great lost
pyramid. A sample transcript from The Witness will give you a glimpse of the
action in this 30's-style detective thriller.
