Publication Pack - Vol. 18 (MEAT)

By: Dr. Dos
Published: Aug. 1, 2021

Just fyi the Heathcliff game has some explicit sexual content. Yeah, you read that right.

This was going to just be a fun little variety pack with this set of published titles, and then when I went to the Museum to get everything published, two more games sneaked in! So now we're getting all ten.

The fastest turnaround from upload to publication ever. A new release from the folks who brought us Jeremiad. Some very distinct visuals, some very explicit content, and a whole lot of Heathcliff.

This actually comes in just in time. There's a big collection of issues from a ZZT/MZX mailing list that will be going up later this month which has a review for "The Bob Series", and sure enough this is the third in that series, despite the "1" in the title.

This is another fix of a corrupt game in which Business Bob (now Hero Bob) must save the world. Also everything is named Bob.

A basic RPG with the plot of the final boss being a giant mechanical airship shaped like a dragon that's powered by the brain of an actual dragon. Very metal.

A ZZT magazine's first issue! Featuring reviews and an arcade with minigames. The "Destroy my house" game looks amusing enough.

A racing engine that came out before Speed Racer X. This one has 8-directional movement and a very clever "tunnel" that's just fake walls that the car blends into when it's on top of.
