For the first time, all three stories in the Zork Trilogy are together in one package at a savings of almost 50% off the individual purchase price. The Zork Trilogy takes place in a vast underground labyrinth-the remnants of the Great Underground Empire. Zork I takes you into this fabulous land in search of its incomparable treasures. Zork II sends you on a journey to a long-hidden region of the empire, dominated by the frivolous Wizard of Frobozz-who pops up from time to time for the express purpose of annoying you. Zork III draws you into the deepest and most mysterious regions of the empire and features encounters with Dimwit Flathead and the Dungeon Master.
