With Zachtronics moving on from game development, their last game is now out in Early Access with Last Call BBS although it's actually not just one game.

"Boot up your Z5 Powerlance and dial into Last Call BBS, the last game from Zachtronics! The Barkeep’s loaded up his retro computer with a full set of puzzle games for you to download and play. No need to worry about copy protection, they’re all fully cracked and ready to enjoy!"

This is actually a game pack that includes:

  • 20th Century Food Court: Design factories to produce food just like they did over 700 years ago in the 20th century. Keep your costs low and your machines running fast!
  • STEED FORCE Hobby Studio: Assemble robot models based on the anime smash hit Steed Force right on your computer. No sandpaper required!
  • X’BPGH: The Forbidden Path: Enter a cursed world and create bizarre flesh sculptures in exchange for eternal life. The master is pleased… but can you trust him?
  • Sawayama Solitaire: It wouldn’t be a Zachtronics release without a brand-new solitaire game. This time it’s a fresh take on Klondike, the “classic” solitaire variant.
  • Dungeons & Diagrams: Try your hand at these beguiling tile-based logic puzzles. Can you map out the dungeons and steal all the treasure?
  • ChipWizard™ Professional: Build integrated circuits using wires, transistors, and capacitors. Wait a second, is this a game or a CAD program?
  • HACK*MATCH: The tile-matching minigame from EXAPUNKS, completely remastered with a single player campaign and local head-to-head multiplayer (with Steam Remote Play support).
  • Kabufuda Solitaire: Create matching sets of Japanese kabufuda cards in this retro-demake of the challenging original solitaire game that debuted in Eliza.

They will also be doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit on Thursday where you can fire off those burning questions.

It's a shame to know they won't be making any more games (it really is the last), with Zach moving onto a teaching job that was confirmed during a recent Q&A livestream.

Available to buy with a Native Linux version from Steam and soon on GOG too.

Want! As a fan of Zachtronics games, I can only hope that at some point in the future he feels a burning desire to create more.

Maybe they will inspire their students to make games as nice or even better!
Kind of reminds me of Retro Game Challenge for the Nintendo DS. I like the art style. I just wonder if the mini games will be fun in and of themselves or if the whole package is just going to feel like a novelty.
