No, not Infocom. Digital Reality. The presentation value on this collection is quite high with MS-DOS based installers and menus! It's also solely installers so the file viewer and play online features won't be much help.

I can say this one is a bit rougher as I played a different version of it. Fight students and aliens? It's WAR.

This game's title screen lettering has lived rent free inside my head for more than 20 years now.

An updated release of an art collection that fixes numerous typos, features lots of brands, and previews a ZZT Police Quest game with exactly the tone you'd expect it to have.

A group of skaters have taken over the school. They set up a bomb in the torture room. I have no idea what they mean by this barbaric act of idiocy. You must deactivate the bomb. Here you might need these gems left over from the nuclear reactor in the teachers lounge.

I love that the title screen is now green instead of yellow due to being opened in the editor while the title screen was animating. Turmoil is a childhood favorite of mine that's a great game for ZZT newcomers.

Okay, it looks like Weave has stabilized a bit and this version hasn't been tweaked in a few weeks. I'll risk it and publish it.

Another ZZT test world intended to make it easy to verify intended behaviors in ZZT clones which didn't have the luxury of being able to reference ZZT source code! This one specifically made for Inmatarian's FreeZZT.
