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.

World created using the ZZT engine. Please note that emulation via DOSBox frequently suffers from slow performance, laggy input, and audio issues, especially on more demanding ZZT worlds. An alternate emulator for ZZT such as Zeta or a modern source port like ClassicZoo may provide a better experience.

World created using the ZZT engine. An update to the Walking Simulator Demo I released in 2020. Still a demo. Please note that emulation via DOSBox frequently suffers from slow performance, laggy input, and audio issues, especially on more demanding ZZT worlds. An alternate emulator for ZZT such as Zeta or a modern source port like ClassicZoo may provide a better experience.
