About the Story
The hit text adventure from Capital World Games! Join Dorkgimp Weinerstink as he aimlessly stumbles around looking for commands that the parser will accept. Featuring award-winning* ASCII graphics and an updated soundtrack by Aaron Kearns / the_muteKi and a couple of French tree frogs!
* this statement will become true once the IGF Pirate Kart wins the IGF.
This game was created in BASIC by a twelve year old Jeremy Penner, who would later find greater fame with glorioustrainwrecks.com.
Initially written as a Zak McKracken fan sequel, many elements were changed after Penner discovered copyright. Originally released for DOS as shareware in 1994, it was later ported to Windows and made freely available as part of the 2012 IGF Pirate Kart.
Players who registered would also receive a bonus arcade game titled The Alien Zit. To celebrate the re-release of Dorkgimp, this was also ported to Windows and can be found at the following URL: glorioustrainwrecks.com/node/1967

Child authored IF by Hulk Handsome
