IF YOU GET THE "NEW ZORK TIMES" FROM INFOCOM THEN YOU KNOW ABOUT A NEW GAME

THAT INFOCOM IS PUTTING OUT CALLED "FOOBLITZKY" - THIS IS THE FIRST GAME THAT INFOCOM HAS EVER RELEASED THAT USES GRAPHICS…IT'S NOT AN ADVENTURE EITHER! IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD FROM THE PANPHLET I GOT WITH THE LAST ISSUE OF NZT BUT A FRIEND OF MINE WHOSE OLDER BROTHER WORKS FOR INFOCOM (NOT IN THE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PART-TOO BAD!) TELLS ME SOMETHING NASTY ABOUT IT…

FOR THE FIRST SIX MONTHS THAT THE GAME IS OUT YOU CAN ONLY BUY IT THROUGH THE

NEW ZORK TIMES DIRECT FROM INFOCOM. BY ITSELF THATS NOT TOO BAD BUT THIS GUY SAYS THAT INFOCOM WILL BE USING THAT FACT TO HELP THE SOFTWARE PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION SHUT DOWN AE LINES! SEE, THEY WILL ENCODE THE SERIAL NUMBER IN THE GAME IN SOME WIERD WAY THAT'LL BE HARD TO TRACK DOWN, AND THEN THEY'LL DOWNLOAD CRACKED COPIES OF THE THING FROM ANY AE LINES THAT THEY FIND AND CHECK THE SERIAL NUMBER-IF THE SYSOP IS NOT A REGISTERED OWNER OF THE GAME THEY'RE GOING TO SHUT HIM DOWN, AND SUE THE PERSON IT WAS SOLD TO AS WELL, BECAUSE THEY'LL RECORD ALL THAT SHIT WHEN THEY SELL A COPY (JUST LIKE THE GUYS WHO MAKE SIDERS DO). SINCE ITS ONLY BEING SOLD DIRECT FROM INFOCOM THERE'S NO WAY THAT YOU CAN GET A COPY LEGALLY EXCEPT FROM THEM SO YOU'D BETTER LOOK OUT IF YOU SEE THIS GAME ON YOUR BOARD SOME MORNING! ONLY GIVE IT TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW VERY WELL OR YOUR SYSTEM MIGHT END UP IN SOME POLICE PROPERTY ROOM SOMEWHERE…

I DON'T KNOW HOW TRUE THIS IS BUT IT SURE SOUNDS POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY SINCE

INFOCOM IS REALLY BIG IN THE SOFTWARE PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION. NO GAME IS WORTH LOSING YOUR COMPUTER FOR SO LOOK OUT…WHAT THE HELL…INFOCOM STUFF IS USUALLY WORTH BUYING ANYWAY.
