This week I felt like it was time to take a walk down memory lane...

For those who are unfamiliar with 'Adventure' I will quote http://www.rickadams.org/adventure/a_history.html :

Before there was Doom, Ultima, Rogue, or even Zork, there was... Adventure.

There were other text computer games before Adventure, such as STARTREK and WUMPUS, but this was the first of its kind; the first text "interactive fiction" game. It may seem outdated and quaint by today's standards, sort of like seeing the Wright brothers' original flyer parked next to a Boeing 747, but many of us remember it fondly.

Personally I never got into Adventure that much - but it is one of the few games that my father really got into.  So this ones for you Joe :-)

If you want to try this classic game out for yourself you can download it from http://www.rickadams.org/adventure/e_downloads.html

  • Totally forgot about XYZZY. Good to find it again.
  • So what's wrong with trying to eat a shiny brass lamp?
  • I've got and old version of Adventure for the Tandy TRS-80 (model I).
    It was from.... Microsoft.
    I've played for hours until I got all the points and I was a Grandmaster.

    Now where is that TRS-80 emulator....

    Well obviously, it is ridiculous :)
