Before Epic Megagames (creators of the Unreal series) even became known as Epic Megagames, Tim Sweeney created this relatively simple GCS which served as the inspiration for Megazeux and resulted in over 100,000 registrations by users. That's not too shabby. It was the level editor which captured peoples' imaginations. Even though ZZT has been eclipsed by Megazeux in terms of usability, features, graphics, sound, etc., it is still somewhat popular. Also, well over 1,000 ZZT games have been created, and hundreds are available on the net! And dozens of those are actually good! ;) (Note: Even though the game says 'Registered Version: Do not distribute', Epic has released the registered version for free.)
