Play Zork over AIM

by john on March 22, 2004

I’ve seen some pretty cool applications of AIM(AOL Instant Messenger) and Andy Baio’s latest hack which allows you to “play a handful of old Infocom games”:http://www.waxy.org/archive/2004/03/21/infocomb.shtml#002715 Like Zork I, II & III over AIM has to be about the coolest. It even supports Save and Restore. Check out the link for an example transcript or just send a message to Infocombot or Infocombot2

Not practical in and of itself but definitely shows the power of AIM as a robust auto-responder, extremely useful for providing automated technical support, for example.
