JENNIFER JANOWSKI IS DOOMED is a game for WeaveZZT. What the heck is that? ZZT is a thirty-year-old game-making tool. Weave is a tool for modding and extending ZZT.
HOW DO I PLAY? Use the arrow keys! Bump into things to interact with them. Other mechanics will be explained as you go. Press the H key in-game for more help.
TONE AND CONTENT. The tone of this game is inspired by queer YA fiction, teen horror movies like the Fear Street trilogy, and Scooby Doo. There is some psychological horror, but most of the game could be described as "goofy."
CONTENT WARNINGS (Contains spoilers)
DOWNLOADING THE GAME. You can download the game below, but note that you can't run it in vanilla ZZT. You'll need the latest version of FirmWeave to run the game. Make sure all the files included in the zip are in the same folder!
CREDITS. Jennifer Janowski is Doomed was created by Anna Anthropy (me). It was started in December of 2021 and released on February 28, 2022. The tools I used include zEdit2, FirmWeave and Zeta.
