Publication Pack - Vol. 32 - New Year's Eve Grab Bag

14 worlds published ending the year on a high note!

The final day! As is tradition there's plenty of end of year compilations from ZZTers dutifully creating nearly 31 years on. I wanted to make sure anything made in 2021 released in 2021, and while there wasn't quite enough here to hit the usual eight entries, there's plenty of other older works to pad things out. So much so in fact, that we're going to leave the queue full of toolkits and do an extra large publication of a dozen titles today.

Single board games are well established, but "Sweet Dreams" takes the player on a short dreamy journey with the goal of minimizing the world size resulting in 11 boards taking up barely 7 kilobytes of space!

In the mid 2000s, Flimsy Parkins having been given FTP access to z2 quietly replaced its copy of ZZT with a version containing a replaced version of Town. This is the original compilation unsuspecting downloaders acquired.

An earlier revision of a game that's been on the Closer Look Poll for a bit. I should see if this old version may be preferable...

Some very simple mazes and a board previewing an upcoming game. This was recovered from a defunct Tripod hosted website. Perhaps the MM means this is the OG Maze Minders?

An alternate incomplete demo which is dated several months after the previous version but has fewer boards connected to it? Perhaps that is the mystery of the cinema.

A ZZTV channel as it was submitted to the organizer! I've got one or two of these myself I should upload then. #tus contains a ZZT ant farm and very very very long cinematic for PPDV!

I love seeing fangames for things that we didn't have ZZT fangames of! This is a very simple first game sort of world with some Tiny Toons themes. Montana Max would say fuck if he could get away with it.


Edit: Hold it!

We've got two more arriving at the last hour!

And a cursed way to end it all with a Super ZZT meme game that I do not have the minute to take screenshots of.
