Remember Zork, Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and other such games from the '70s-'80s? You know, "interactive fiction"? Well, frotz is the way you should be playing those games under Mac OS X. Detailed instructions are included. Happy adventuring!

That's really about it. It's a command line app (runs in terminal), so there's not really all that much to screenshot. Take a look at Zoom for a Mac OS X native app that does the same thing, with screenshots.

I wish the website had more information as to what exactly this is (description, screenshots?) in addition to all the techie stuff. I never played those 70s/80s games but I think I know what they are ("You come to a fork in the road - which path do you take?" etc.?) but I like to know what something is specifically before I try it out.
