zinnia_zeroth @ 10:14 am: What to play next?
What do you play when you've played all the Infocom text and graphic adventures? Any recommendations of something a huge Zork fan would like?

I use www.wurb.com/if/settables?set=no that site. I think that's the right link.

I tried the link and it didn't work. Any suggestions? What would I search on for Google?

Grim Fandango, King's Quest, Myst (if you want to donate years of your existance), and other such contemporaries.

The monkey island series is always a classic.

I second Grim Fandango. It's a very good, and extremely funny, game.

I'd start playing through the IF Comp games, personally.

Spiritwrak (a fan-written text game set in the Zork universe.)is pretty good if you want to stay in Zork. I recommend hunting down any and all of the later games written Infocom's authors. Loom in particular.

Otherwise, most of the Lucasarts adventures were entertaining. Many (including Loom) are available through the Abandonia site: http://www.abandonia.com/genre.php?genre=adventure&page=0

And there are definitely plenty of good games on the IF archive.

Ive been thinking of picking up a copy of "The Space Bar" graphical adventure by an old Infocom dev.

Ooo, I loved "Space Bar." To others, thanks, I'll have to look into all those suggestions.
