Coming back to this game once again, and so I noticed there are no comments pointing out how F@&%ING AMAZING it is. I love this game. Thank you.
For best performance, download is recommended.
Find the GOLDEN & to save THE MANA TOWN from INSTABILITY. This is a roguelike in MegaZeux which pays pretty on-the-nose homage to ZZT. A few things will NOT work as expected if you're going just on ZZT experience.
Version in browser is now the post-7drl fix which fixes:
1. a number of false catches for bad generations (fewer regens artificially restart now)
2. UX issue with quitting the game voluntarily.
3. Some Softlocks and potential softlocks
Clarification for 7drl judges: There's a couple other very small things that might be in there "new":
The addition of the CP437 "spade" as a player character option
Maybe 2-3 sounds/sound things
But the three numbered above are the more significant changes. The post-fix version will remain as it was labeled for Tuesday the 16th in the early AM.
Downloadable versions are differentiated between 7drl version and fix.
For best experience, please use the standalone version for Win64 or (in the case of another OS) use the .MZX-only version with MegaZeux for your OS.

Megazeux Quest Complete!
game was stuck on creating areas for a LONG time. (may be a good idea to report the failure of the sanity check instead of simply restarting)
Agreed. I also want to fix the root issue the sanity check is designed for, although I plan to leave it in just in case (it's more specifically a "can the player technically complete the game with this map" check.)
Hey, just an FYI that the post-fix version should address this issue by and large. If you end your current game and reload on the new version you should have a much better experience with the sanity check (it should only be failing about 3% of the time but it was failing a LOT more than that, I know.) An embarrassing error on my part. (For reasons involving me using default MZX savefiles, you'll want to die in your current run.)
