    I have been playing it a tiny bit yesterday. Made it out the prison and recovered the Tunic.

    It’s funny, but I’m not sure this game aged well at all. Having to do redo the “escape from prison” scene countlesses time because of minor timing issues, even when you made it as far as your own home doesn’t constitute my idea of fun.

    Still, I will keep on playing because I seem to remember from my days of playing this as a kid that it DOES improve as you play, with the game becoming more open ended and you being able to explore more freely.

    I failed to finish the game back then, let’s see how far I go this time.

    Logged on this morning to suggest ZZT, but also very glad to see that someone beat me to it 🙂

    So I shall add my voice to the bunch, and suggest we get around to play ZZT at some point. It is both of historical interest, as it is developped by Tim Sweeney the now head honcho of Epic Games, but also by the fact that the game still have a vivid community, despite or thanks to how minimalist it is. It is fascinating to see how people are pushing the engine and coming with super weird stuff.

    What more, it’s also super accessible ! A lot of the mods are just one click away on https://museumofzzt.com/ , and also archive.org https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_zzt . Most adventures are fairly short, but Museum of ZZT actually support saving games online !

    https://3drealms.com/catalog/3d-realms-arcade-collection_55/ aahh forget it, it’s unavailable now 🙁

    I wonder why. Is this because of the issue over the Duke Nukem licensing ?

    It’s also included in the 3DRealms Collection that is sold on the 3D Realms website, alongside plenty of other fantastic Apogee games.

    I do remember this one for looking quite graphically impressive at the time, but also for the absolutely superb manual it came with.
