Frotz is a Z-Machine interpreter; in short, a program for playing text-based adventure games. If you've played classics like Zork or Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you'll know what to expect. (Unfortunately, these two specific games are not available on, since they are commercial works).

Fortunately, there is a robust community making modern text-based adventure games (which are now called Interactive Fiction). Many games are available for free from the Interactive Fiction Archive. A few of our members are writing their own IF right on the server using the Inform 7 programming language!
