Dorkily Wishful . . .
 

Recently when I went to see a movie (I think “Prince Caspian”) a trailer for the following movie showed. I have since found out it’s based on a children’s book (which obviously I haven’t read), but until they got towards the end of the trailer . . . I had gasped . . . I was dumbfounded . . . did someone actually make a movie of one of my all time favorite games? The story wasn’t quiet the same as I remembered, but it was underground, and the scenery was picture perfect . . .



Watch the trailer, see if you see it too. Only those old enough to have played the game will probably see what I wishfully saw . . .

Read on to see what I saw (so I don’t spoil your perception of what I was hoping for) . . . .

Okay . . . you are dead

Yes, if you haven’t put it together, especially with the play on words in the title of the post, I thought someone had made a movie out of “Zork.” I was so excited at first too. *Sigh*

For those who don’t know it, Zork was a text game by the company Infocom back in the early 80s. There were three original Zorks, followed by an RPGish Zork game, then in the age of CD games a few CD Zork based games. Nothing ever got close to the classic text game though. Something tells me you can probably download the originals somewhere online for free to play.

My first thought was “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome Meets Da Vinci Code Meets Star Blazers” 😉

You know, I think I played that with a friend; I seem to vaguely remember it. The movie looks good.
