Portcullis by robinjohnson

The city of Portcullis has been taken over by an evil sorcerer (because that's what evil sorcerers do), and a party of adventurers has arrived in town to overthrow him (because that's what adventurers do.) A retro-styled comic adventure, written for the 35th anniversary of Zork and the 40th anniversary of the original Adventure, in tribute to the drily humorous heroic-fantasy games that dominated the early days of interactive fiction.

I really enjoyed playing this game - it's tricky without being frustratingly difficult, and it has the feel of the old Zork games. Everything seemed to work without any frustrating issues around the phrasing you need to use to perform actions. It's also funny, especially that the NPCs are so expendable! I just wish the game was a bit longer!

I'm not very far, but I can tell this is very well put together. Impressively done.
