Lectrote, an interpreter app by Andrew Plotkin, allows players to play Adrift 4, Glulx, Hugo, TADS, and Z-machine works, as well as ink works that have been compiled to .json format. Lectrote is based on the Quixe interpreter and packaged with Electron. There are release packages for Linux, MacOS and Windows available.
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
