Hey, ZZrTers. Been thinking about maybe staging another ZZT game jam in the future, maybe this Fall, maybe not on an international holiday.

In the meantime, I released a freeware game that I spend most of last year working on. It's called Caverns of Khron and it's all NES and DOS-game inspired retro sensibilities and stuff.

WiL wrote the music for it.

The lizardmen are real tough! I like the level design, a lot. Some cool puzzles and a good amount of action. Though it seems that later levels seem to favor action over puzzles. Haven't finished it yet.
The music is pretty great. I like the first level track and the lizard man level track the best so far.

Also: Thanking Sweeny for ZZT and Janson for STK in the manual is Image

Hey, kids. I guess why not indulge in a little shameless self-promotion on this here quiet internet forum I still check a couple times a week? I did it five years ago!

Here is Explobers, a puzzle platformer inspired by things like Lemmings (still on that shit) and the Lost Vikings. I've spent probably more time on this game than any game I've made. The palette is the 16 EGA colors, because I'm a dork who grew up on ZZT.

Free download. I like donations but don't need them.

I even made a fucking trailer. God help me.

Meet "Oolite", the fanmade sequel to Ian Bell's venerable Elite:

As-is it's a dang fine successor to the original but of all things it specifically supports mods. At last count there are well over 500 of them, including landing on planets to space communists to just random stuff happening in your day-to-day space life.

Do formerly-paid games specifically released by the makers as free count as freeware?

I've been made aware that Epic Games and many other makers of DOS games have generously opened their archives, releasing a lot of stuff to the public.

If it's free software it's freeware. One might be picky and say that's how it has to be released, but I will not. Things like ROM's which are in the sketchy abandonware/owned catagory not so much even if "free."

I wouldn't dare post that on even the faintest possibility it might attract unwanted attention. But there are a lot of classics by the big names of the day being kindly released for free.

By all means put such games here. I.e released (a while ago admittedly) by 3D Realms: Monuments of Mars/Pharaos' Tomb/Arctic Adventure.
