Interactive fiction / text adventures / point and click adventures in Esperanto?

I saw user SamirShaker describe how he played point and click adventure games in German when learning German (https://www.duolingo.com/comment/13525670$comment_id=13561071) and think this is a really good idea. Have any of you played adventure games in Esperanto? I want to complete the Duolingo course before trying that, but would love to give it a go afterwards.

It looks as if there is a text adventure game in Esperanto called " La Insulo Texel" (http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=ijr351ccjmokhjn5) , another one called "Fajfeta sur la Luno" (translation of a game called "Squeaky on the Moon", http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=y7t917n50bqw1dt4), possibly a game (RPG?) called Cantr II (https://cantr.net) but my Esperanto is not good enough to read the description so I'm not sure, and an Esperanto version of a graphic adventure game called Maniac Mansion (https://eo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maniac_Mansion), though the download link I found didn't work for me as my virus software said the download was attempting to install unauthorised software. There's a YouTube video of Maniac Mansion in Esperanto at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7ENMae4j5s. I also found an Esperanto version of a beginner's guide to interactive fiction / text adventures at http://webhome.idirect.com/~dswxyz/eo/bgtif-eo.html.

Would love to know if anyone has played any of these and what they are like.

It's not quite "point and click" but Minecraft has Esperanto as one of its languages.
