Well hello there, and welcome to adventure!
I’ve made nine text adventures. They all work on Windows, Linux and OS X.
To play these games, you just need an interpreter program. I recommend Hugor for Windows, Linux or Mac – Intel or PowerPC.

I wrote Cryptozookeeper between 2006 and 2011. I wanted to make a full-length graphical adventure game that had funny characters in offbeat situations, all within an alternate future. The central premise of the game is that you play a guy named Vest that discovers machinery that allows him to build cryptids from the DNA of normal animals. Sprinkle in some unwilling accomplices, a grim and gritty city to explore and some fun dialogue and you’ve got an idea what’s in store for you.
