Infocomics were a huge commercial failure for a number of reasons:

  1. it wasn't really a game
  2. low CGA graphics appeal in a time when EGA was king
  3. the low pricing did not inspire quality confidence in the consumer's mind


ZorkQuest: The Crystal of Doom was released after the original 3 Infocomics flopped. Since this one was "in-the-can" it was shipped, but to save costs, only the cover art was changed, the rest of the package was the exact images from ZorkQuest: Assault on Egreth Castle.
