Roll call: who here was a ZZTer? I used to be quite the boy around town in that gang!

I never played the original ZZT games, but I built a game with the engine and played a lot of the other user-made games.

I still have at least 10 games I made with this thing in middle school. I never really got serious about programming, but learning ZZT-OOP in 6th grade definitely made it easier to pick up the basics of real object oriented programming in college.

I actually STILL play it every few years, but I haven't made a game since maybe 1990.

I played the SHIT out of Yoshi's Road Apple and a bunch of shitty school shooting games. I don't recall ever playing a game that looked this good.

"Code Red" was still one of the best games ever made period. Gave me more hours per play per dollar. I was in the Commune but was never really big. Confession: I never played Kudzu all the way through... :(

Did a lot of ZZT playing and game design back in the day... sadly, disk corruption took care of all that...

Former ZZT'er, made many unfinished "masterpieces" in my day.

And yes, very much agreed, one of the best creativity programs ever made.

Wasn't it the first game to be released with a level editor? Or did Bard's Tale Construction Set come first?
StanleyPain - 2011-04-25
BTCS I think did come first, as did the TSR engine one (Adventure Creation Kit? I think?), but ZZT allowed for way more complexity to your games than either of those.
