Zem! X


For the final game in the Zem! series, the game moves away from its Lemmings root and toward an action platformer. The player character is Ben (or Jenna) Hunter, a lemming hunter, who has to chase down and save Zem before Zem walks into a pit of spikes or any other danger.

This was announced as my official retirement from ZZT game development. I had begun working on the game almost immediately after Zem! 2 (the Zem! 2 Level Pack included a preview of Zem! X).

Zem! 2 Level Pack


Zem! 2 was well-received, but it was frequently noted that its level design was excessively simple and presented no real challenge. Speaking to fellow ZZTers in the chat rooms of the day, the plan was hatched to collect levels from the community rather than have a traditional sequel. The game features twenty-five stages from ten contributors in addition to myself. Contributors include Gunner, Scribbit, Viovis, Glynth, tseng, and more. Levels tended toward greater challenge and some contributors programmed some interesting new elements.

Released about half a year after the original Zem! 2.
