Publication Pack - Vol. 50 - No Signs of Stopping (Our Rollerblades)

By: Dr. Dos
Published: June 29, 2022

Fifty publication packs thanks to a love of fan games

Happy 50th Publication Pack! It is a going to be a very long time before these slow to a stop. After fifty of these, you probably know what to expect. ZZT games very loosely based on media properties, project dumps of neat ideas that never got finished, and funny typos. Congads everyone. We did it.

A very impressive, but incomplete, pseudo-platformer loaded with detail and charm as you rescue humans from malfunctioning robots. Had this one been finished it would have definitely been a notable release for 2004!
