Zoltan

Zoltan 2.0! Now with more!

Zoltan 2.0 provides the same comforting features as version 1.2, but with the added bonuses of: Improved graphics, auto-update, a toolbar, useless help, ritual sacrifice, and an incomplete, meaningless "Book of Zoltan"! All of this and more, still for the low, low price of free!

 

I originally made a program called Zoltan in 1998 on my Mac 6300-something. In the intervening time I've drank a lot and now have no recollection of what Zoltan did or why. I do remember that Zoltan was a giant stone Moai head and that the program never made it out of college-basement-labratory-Alpha release. So, in the interest of confirming my implied insanity, I decided to resurrect this never-finished project that has been lost to the sands of time and outdated computers. ~Version 2.0 includes features originally meant for the game- like the ability to make sacrifices to Zoltan, and an all-around stranger game interface. I also needed a reason for his existence, and thankfully technological advances made between 1998 and 2008 have allowed me to give him one: He shows you the weather! Much like his slightly-more-useful widget brethren, Zoltan will poll a weather RSS and change his surroundings based on the weather outside! Who needs windows or doors when Zoltan can tell you if it is raining, snowing, cloudy, or even night time outside?!?! Zoltan sits there, the weather swirling around him, waiting for you to ask him a question…

 

UPDATE October 2015: Zoltan no longer works on OS X. He crashes right away. For now Zoltan this is here for reference and for anyone running older versions of OS X.
