HOTXMAS.ZIP is absolutely a filename you'd see as an email attachment in 1995. This is a special issue of The NL ZZT/MZX newsletter of the mid-90s in executable form! Featuring a few reviews of games including Merbotia, and a letdown of an interview with its author that was planned but didn't actually happen.

Firmweave meanwhile is an ambitious enhanced ZZT fork that adds support for extra counters, flags, a slew of new commands, and is intended to create brand new ZZT worlds which would be impossible, or convoluted and unfriendly to the programmer and/or newcomers to playing ZZT.

Weave is still under active development and you should definitely use the Weave 2 itch page to make sure you download the latest version!

Exactly what it says on the tin. What a great company name and logo. Also includes "Rogue Mini-Toolkit" which contains the relevant pieces for making the logo plus some music.
