Indeed, why a screenshot of the game being "emulated" in Frotz?

Was it because the original version looked too much like a CLI prompt screen?

It was me! I decided that because the text looked absolutely crap in a 320x256 image, I'd run it through the interpreter instead. I reckoned that text adventures were about the text, not the graphics.
