Livestream - Asbestos

A rough ZZT RPG of the era that doesn't have offer a whole lot today

Livestream of the ZZT world "Asbestos" by vampy (1999)

An unusual game with Final Fantasy 7 influences, references, and mandatory trivia abound. Journey from planet to planet to acquire various elemental gems in order to defeat chaos and save the universe.

This is a rough one whose humor falls pretty flat today (as in not particularly funny rather than offensive). The puzzles feel like forced methods to stop the player from progressing rather than part of a natural world and the RPG battles that so many games of this vintage had offer nothing to stand out.

It's the kind of game whose structure and unusual design choices could have a lasting impact to a younger playerbase, but these days it's just a lot of walking with very few bits of comedy that hold up as payoff.
