That's the most pretentious outer box I've ever seen.

 

That's par for the course for the Video Game Authority, I see them all the time with games inside them by pretentious collectors.

 

I'm impressed that the Personal Software version of Zork came in a box rather than a baggie. The TRS-80 Model I/III version came in a baggie.

This one is quite early. The disk seems to be of DOS 3.2 era 13 sector type....so it would only boot in an Apple II with the original Disk ][ controller fitted with the 13 sector type PROMS,.. or one would need to use BOOT13 from the DOS 3.3 Master disk when used with a more modern Disk ][ controller + drive.

If the disk is copy protected, and there is a reasonable chance that it would be, I wonder whether BOOT13 will be sufficient to allow the game to run. Early On-line Systems titles also assumed a 13-sector PROM.
