Livestream of the ZZT worlds:
- "ID4: Independence Day"
- "Independence Day" by TChiaramonte
- "Batman Forever" (1996)
- "Area 51" by MicroX32 (1997)
- "Grubville" by Mark Appleby (1992)
Summer blockbusters abound in this 3rd of July stream. The Independence Day games both offered up some crude depictions of scenes from the movie that you better be familiar with if you want to comprehend what's going on in them.
Batman Forever was a crowd pleaser thanks to its art boards and heavy use of ZZT's on screen text elements to retell the events of the film in a way much easier to follow than ID4.
Area 51 looked like it was going to be more impressive with a much more polished title screen than the others. Despite making a good first impression though, it was yet more piles of ZZT creatures to shoot and ping-pong-paths to navigate.
All the games were pretty short, so a bonus 5th game was played with "Grubville" which would up being the winner. General weirdness, a sudden pivot to toilet humor, and a few amusing bugs made the game a fun little trip that was difficult to know what was coming up next as you searched for a wedding ring to marry your girlfriend, and also searched for gems to buy the contents of your girlfriend's basement.
