Zoom - A very nice interactive fiction game interpreter
Authored by: Peganthyrus on Jan 09, '07 07:28:28PM
Hmm, I think Spatterlight goes a lot further into trying to make the basic experience of reading lots of text a pleasant one. Plus it handles pretty much any kind of IF datafile you can find; Zoom looks to only do Z-code. Not that I seem to have the focus to sit down and suffer a zork* any more. sigh

Thanks for remembering me of Spatterlight, which I had previously found when trying to play IF in Mac OS X

But now Zoom 1.1.2 has very many interesting characteristics, including an integrated IF Database Browser with direct title download!

It seems I could make both Zoom and Spatterlight game libraries compatible, but I'll have to work it out.
