Some of us still hold dearly to the games of the past, and one of them is Zork - one of the first interactive fiction games that dates back to 1977. The folks from the rossum website had the bug and have squeezed in a workable version to work with Arduino and compatible boards.
Their effort is quite clever in that it uses a keyboard with an infra-red interface for user control - or you can hack up a PS/2 keyboard as well. And the output isn't to an LCD - instead a full composite video output which is easily achieved with some basic external circuitry. For a quick demonstration check out the following video:
That's pretty cool - and very achievable. For complete information on how to make your own, visit the project website. And for more, we're on facebook, Google+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
