when i was in high school i discovered zzt (and later megazeux) and made
some game worlds for them. mostly i named them weirdland with a
subtitle specific to that game, even though none of them really have
anything to do with each other. i finished three of them and then
started two more. to play them you will need the game environment,
which back when i had them were available free as shareware.
hercules: the thirteenth labor
this was a project for the mythology unit of my 10th grade english class, where weirdland ii (unfinished at the time) was adapted to a greek mythological storyline and carried out to become a full (though short) game. this was the first time i had a raft going across a river in a game, and i made the river by coloring lava dark blue.
weirdland ii: yellow snow and the seventh dork
this game combines weird humor and classic fairy tales. you must take on the role of of yellow snow and attempt to rescue the seventh dork from the evil witch and her flying monkeys. the other dorks aren’t much help to you, but at least you can sell some of the diamonds from their mine.
weirdland i: the breakout
this game started a series in which the games have strange, sometimes confusing plots that have nothing to do with the other games in the series. this is the only weirdland game that can be found in zzt format as the rest are megazeux. it’s actually my second or third gameworld in zzt, but the first one i kept.
jay & andrew vs. the nazi teacher party (unfinished)
this is a game was never finished, but the beginning is playable. a high school history teacher goes nazi during a world war ii unit and it’s up to you and your straw wrappers to stop him and his followers from eliminating all students, including you and your friend.
larry’s adventure in: happy fairy land (unfinished)
this is a game was never finished, but the beginning is playable. this one was going to be closer to rpg format. you play larry, a regular guy that somehow ends up in happy fairy land and has to figure out what’s going on and eventually get home. there’s actually something to do here—give those elves a pummeling!
