Very cool. References several of the other text adventures also.
The first time I encountered one was in the 70s on a DEC when my dad took me to work at Westinghouse. I spent the whole day on it. From looking at the history, I think it was the original Zork implementation on the PDP-10.
Colossal Cave Adventure FTW! I spent many an hour playing that game.

The little touches, like the boxes for an Atari, a Commodore 64, and an Amiga computer, were what I liked best. That was pretty neat, all right.
