You're a long way from home and you've run out of fuel. There's a research station on a nearby moon--perhaps you can find help there? Things couldn't possibly get worse!

Features

Explore a strange lunar environment, solve puzzles, and fight off hostile lunar creatures in this modern indie title created in ZZT, Epic's classic ASCII game creation system.

  • Classic non-linear ZZT gameplay, with a blend of action and puzzle-solving
  • Quirky and touching original story
  • Over six minutes of original PC speaker music and full-screen ASCII animation

 

 Download Information 

The downloadable .zip includes the following:  

  • OnAMoon.zzt (the game itself) 
  • -.zzt; --.zzt; ---.zzt; ----.zzt (four "hype" files I created to generate interest)
  • On_A_Distant_Moon.txt (contains information about the game and development) 
  • On_A_Distant_Moon.mp3; Play_With_Me.mp3; Lift_Off.mp3 (midi versions of the game music) 

To play the .zzt files on your computer you will need ZZT and a copy of Zeta.
