As long as you're interested only in single player, one of the best
platforms today for text adventures is the Infocom Zmachine and Graham
Nelson's Inform language.  But if you're set on multiplayer, I doubt it
would even make sense to convert the Zmachine - you'd be better off
rolling your own (though Inform could still be useful for prototyping the
single player's command line).


(Inform is free software, as are many of the Zmachine implementations,
though Infocom's own games were not.)
