    Frotz is a Z-Machine interpreter for Infocom games. If you aren't aware, Infocom made text adventures (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Leather Goddesses of Phobos, Deadline, Bureaucracy, the Zork series, etc.) and Z-Machine is the name of their text parser, so the graphics are about on par with Term-vt100.
