                        The Halls of ZK

Announcing 'The Halls Of ZK', the original interactive fiction
game written exclusively for OpenVMS! The Halls Of ZK is a

The Halls of ZK was written by William Lees and Edmund Sulliva
sometime in August 1985. Since that time a VAX binary and a VEST'd

John Reagan. The code generator for IFC was re-written to output
MACRO-32 source modules by Tim Sneddon and as such there are now
native versions for all OpenVMS supported architectures available.
