GOG Arrests Zork as Accessory to Police Quest

Good Old Games has announced the triumphant releases of both Zork and Police Quest.

Last week, Good Old Games was hiding something related to Zork behind police tape as a tease. The tease’s purpose has been revealed by GOG’s official announcement of a Zork Anthology release, but with it comes another series that makes a whole lot of sense based on that tape.

GOG’s tease was apparently a two-for-one, as that police tape wasn’t just ensuring that citizens stay away from Zork. It was also referring to GOG’s release of a Police Quest collection, which was also just announced.

As the most popular text adventures in videogame history, the Zork games should need no introduction. For a measly $5.99, GOG’s Zork Anthology includes Zork, Zork II, Zork III, Beyond Zork, and Zork Zero. It also throws in Planetfall for good measure, a sci-fi text adventure written by Steve Meretzky that follows an Ensign on a starship.

The Police Quest collection includes Police Quest, Police Quest 2, Police Quest 3, and Police Quest 4 for $9.99. All are similar to classic Sierra graphical adventure games such as King’s Quest and Space Quest, but with a real world twist. The Police Quest games offer crime-based storylines with realistic characters, and were even designed with the help of actual top cops.

The mix of Zork with Police Quest is kind of like a chicken sandwich topped with a burger. Nobody knows why the two were put together, but hey, why not enjoy both at the same time?
