Behind the Scenes
As the text file included with Todd's Adventure states, I began working on the game in June of 1997 and finished in February of 1998. So why did it take so long for me to finish a game that had only around 30 boards? From June until August, I had little incentive to work on the game, and when AOL stopped uploading ZZT games to their archives, I just sort of assumed that ZZT was dead. I had no idea about the ZZT community on the AOL message boards until late December when I stumbled upon them. Thus, I had a reason to complete TA, and I did so in about a month. However, I didn't put a ton of effort into it, because I really wanted to start work on bigger and better things. At the time, OLZA (OnLine ZZT Archive) was the best place to upload ZZT stuff, so I sent it in to some guy named Baram Arrow or something like that. He gave it three stars out of five, which was about what it deserved. Not too many people played Todd's Adventure, but it still has a special place in my heart, and Todd got cameos in all of my later games!
