Gumby, this might interest you?

"So, Infocom source code is now uploaded to Github. Most people don't speak or want to speak the language it's written in, ZIL (Zork Implementation Language). You can browse through it and kind of suss out what's being done when and the choices made over the course of time."

I for one had a blast trying to parse the ZIL files. In the "read and make sense" sense, not the "make a compiler" sense.

Anybody know if there's any easy way to download them all? I'd rather not download 131 individual repositories if it can be avoided.

Perhaps AutoIt or some kind of script?

That's awesome, all I've ever worked with was output based on de-compiled code combined with symbol files (sound familiar?) resulting in 'inform-ish' scripts.  This is making me want to get back to my Zork project, very nice :)
