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

That was fun, I spent a good few hours trying random things, like drinking holy water, and making a dog friend...
Great game man!

Fantastic. I really felt like I was back in the early 80s. Extremely nostalgic feel. Well written, good 'puzzles', fun NPCs.
