Remember ZZT? I know it's not looney related, but it's been dying out lately and I wanted to see how many people even knew it existed. I enjoy ZZT for the same reason I enjoy many Looney games: It's about doing cool stuff with simple tools.

For those who don't know, it's this old dos game that's all in ascii, and you can go around and pick up keys and fight monsters and all that stuff. Like nethack, but with a level editor. Yes, a built-in, fully functional level editor. There's a whole community about writing new levels and doing cool stuff with ZZT... which brings me to the reason for this post. Has anyone here heard of ZZT before, or know a better alternative?
