ZAPM 0.8.1 beta (sci-fi theme)
« on: January 05, 2010, 07:05:37 PM »
Hello all,

I've been working on ZAPM again after 5 years, and am getting close to a feature freeze for the next version.  I'm releasing a beta for you brave bleeding edge types.  Please post or email me feedback and bug reports!

New in 0.8:
  • Janitor profession
  • a new dungeon branch
  • improved UI and graphics
  • new monsters and items
  • new bugs
  • and more!

Linux and Mac binaries are available at http://zapm.org.

Zappy New Year!

Z

Wow, I have played (and won) that 5 years ago ;) It's great that you revive it.

I've updated the ZAPM page at RogueBasin.

Thanks.  I just made some further edits.  (Hope it's not against rules or convention to edit your own game's page!)

Nope, in fact it is generally a great idea to keep tabs on it as things get hopping!   8)

Man I love this game. I just executed a buggy floppy disk of spam:

Thank you for your order.  Please wait 4-6 orbit cycles for delivery.


The entire game is really brilliant; e.g. I got pregnant from an alien facehugger but could get rid of the embryo by drinking something toxic. The bionic implants are very cool, too.
