Vaguely serious, I wonder what PKD would have thought of such games. I think Zork and a couple others might even be from during his lifetime though I don't think Beyond Zork would have.

OTOH, I don't have a firm enough opinion about after death to be certain he doesn't currently retain the unique identity we are refering to as PKD and have an opinion on Beyond Zork. Of course this has set me off thinking about our conventional time concept, the eternal now and whatever other dimensions/varieties of time exist and wondering how they intersect. An appropriate site for that.
