PIC Z-machine emulator
The goal of this project is to implement a Z-Machine emulator for text adventure games on a PIC. Classic text games, in the Z-machine format, would be read from an SD card. The PIC provides a USB->serial interface, and the games are played from a serial terminal.
What were we thinking? Who knows. Sjaak wrote a killer text adventure game easter egg for the Bus Pirate - the inspiration probably came from there. We abandoned this project when it looked like the PIC wouldn't have nearly enough RAM to run the emulator.
While this will probably never serve it's intended use, it's still a nice 3.3volt USB & SD card development board. This PCB was never made.
