The Z-Machine is the format used by Infocom, and now compiled to by Inform, one of the three most popular platforms for development. You can get an interpreter for practically any system out there, and source is usually available. Please do not ask anyone for Infocom games to play with these interpreters, as these are still under copyright in the majority of the world.
