Before Epic Games (creators of the Unreal series and now the mega-hit Fortnite) 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, thousands of ZZT games have been created, and many are available on the net! And dozens of those are actually good! ;) Note: Even though the game says 'Registered Version: Do not distribute', Epic released the registered version for free. The DOSBOX_ version also includes a sampling of user-created worlds made in ZZT. Download thousands of games and read much more about ZZT and its history at Museum of ZZT.
