Zork My Kindle

October 11, 2010

One of the things I love about the Kindle is that it does one thing really well, which is be a book reading device.  It doesn’t have to make bacon and change my oil and do a dozen other multimedia functions, so long as reading on it is a superlative experience.  So while it does have a browser on it, I really haven’t cared much, other than to buy books.  Until today, when I stumbled upon the perfect marriage of new tech and old.

PortableQuest is a game engine made for text-based interactive fiction that can be played on the Kindle.  Just fire up Whispernet and browse to PortableQuest.com on your Kindle to get started.  You can play Mini-Zork I, Zork I, Zork II or Zork III.

Best of all, you won’t have to worry about being eaten by a grue.  Who said the Kindle needs a backlight!
