Zork Zero was a professional milestone in many ways. My first time working with Steve Meretzky who would become my professional mentor. He was one of the best known Game Designers in the world at the time and he recognized my understanding of the player experience. Approaching him with situations that failed to deliver Interesting Failure States or point out where hints were needed, he tasked me with writing them. So began my Design career.
