Hello, I'm Dr. Dos, the creator of Worlds of ZZT. ZZT was what got me interested in programming as a child, and I've been playing, making, and studying ZZT worlds for nearly 20 years.



This Patreon account goes towards funding the preservation and curation of ZZT and its community.

  • Museum of ZZT - A new z2 inspired website to archive and curate ZZT worlds
  • Zookeeper - A Python library for working with ZZT worlds
  • Closer Looks - A series of articles taking a detailed look at various ZZT worlds.

If you have an interest in making sure that ZZT is preserved for the ages, your pledge can go a long way!

I'll tweet some more screenshots, and tell you what I know (or can find out) about a game. It's no full article, but it can provide context, or make things even more confusing!
