Tim Sweeney

ZZT is an ANSI character-based video game, created in 1991 by Tim Sweeney of Potomac Computer Systems which became Epic MegaGames in 1992. It remains a popular MS-DOS game creation system. ZZT itself is not an acronym for anything; its title was chosen so it would always appear at the bottom of newsgroup listings. It was later jokingly mentioned by Sweeney as being short for Zoo of Zero Tolerance, which has mistakenly become a popular belief.

Death Match is a street-fighter style DOS game starring a number of space-alien and monster creatures. Two players share a keyboard to fight, or a single player can fight the computer. The game makes use of directional controls and two attack buttons per player. Player 1 uses WASD and Y+U for attacks, while player 2 uses the numeric keypad and the square brackets for attacks. The final version of the game was released in 1994 to Fidonet as shareware.
