If you are old enough to have used a computer in the late 1970s, you must have played Adventure. Who knew that the game’s inventor was Will Crowther, or that Adventure was based upon the real Bedquilt Section of Colossal Cave in Kentucky’s Flint Mammoth Cave System?
Adventure is now a topic for scholarship, see: Dennis Jerz’s study in Digital Humanities Quarterly.
Hat tip to Karen L. Myers.
