Lectrote, an interpreter app by Andrew Plotkin, allows players to play Glulx, Z-machine, and Hugo works, as well as ink works that have been compiled to .json format. Lectrote is based on the Quixe interpreter and packaged with the Chromium browser. There are release packages for Linux, MacOS and Windows available.

At the time of its beta release on January 26, 2016, Lectrote supported only Glulx works. Version 1.1.0 of Lectrote, which was released on July 11, 2016, added ink support. Z-machine support was added on October 1, 2016 in Version 1.1.3. Version 1.2.4 added support for Hugo.

You can also use this package to construct a "bound game". This is a package containing Chromium, the interpreter, your game file, and perhaps some additional configuration. You can distribute this as a standalone game application. Packaging requires Linux, for discussion on how to make this work on Windows, see trying to make standalone game w/ Lectrote - Sep 14, 2017
