Rob's Adventure Game Page
Since my second real job, where a co-worker introduced me to the all-text game "Adventure" on a PDP-11, I have been fond of what have come to be known as Adventure Games (Wikipedia). This genre includes text adventures (a.k.a. interactive fiction or IF), and graphic adventures. I amassed a fairly extensive collection of adventure games over the years, starting with some Commodore Vic-20 cartridges of Scott Adams games, then Infocom games and others for the Atari ST platform, and later for the PC, with a side trip onto the Palm handheld. As you'll see, I actually installed and played, let alone completed, only a fraction of them. Below is a list of Adventure Games and a few other types in my collection, indexed alphabetically by name. As of 2012 I have been unable to resist acquiring many new adventures since now what with downloads they are so cheap compared to when I used to hunt down boxed CDs at computer faires! I also acquired an Android tablet and a GearVR headset and am playing content for those.

Text Adventures

Crowther and Woods released the original Colossal Cave Adventure in 1976/77. Inspired by Colossal Adventure, Zork (which formed the basis of Zork I-III) was released in 1977 (work continued until 1979) and was programmed by Tim Anderson, Marc Blank, Bruce Daniels and Dave Lebling, who were then students at MIT. Read about Zork's development history here. Scott Adams' Adventure International followed with Adventureland, and Pirate Adventure in 1978. (See entry at Mobygames.) Infocom issued Zork I in 1980. Sierra Online issued Mystery House, the first adventure to feature graphics, in 1980.

NEWER GAMES

OLD GAMES


I and many others reserve a place in our hearts for the (sadly, defunct) company Infocom and its pioneering text adventure games that set a gold standard for well-crafted and witty storytelling rarely, if at all, equalled since.

The "canon" comprises 35 games, plus freeware ZTUU, and the 3 later Activision graphical Zork games. I bought most of the Infocom games in boxes that included various baubles. At the time I had an Atari ST system. I also acquired the Lost Treasures of Infocom I and II boxed sets, for the PC. The LTOI sets include all games except Leather Goddesses of Phobos, the 3 graphical games produced in 1989: Shogun, Arthur, and Journey, and the 3 Activision Zork games from the 90's.

Timeline:

Infocom was founded June 22, 1979. Cornerstone product started in 1982, issued 1985. Infocom sold to Activision on June 13, 1986. On May 5 1989 Activision laid off 16 of remaining 26 Infocom employees. Games after 1989 (except ZTUU) done by outsiders. I give the internal chronological order for the games set in the Zork universe (The Great Underground Empire or GUE), in parentheses above the games. I also show small snapshots of the authors, so you can get a sense of who wrote what. Lebling and Blank were the key guys, with several done by Meretzky, and a few each by Berlyn, Moriarty, and Galley, and a handful of additional authors. It seems fitting to me that the stalwarts Lebling and Blank bookended the near-decade run of the company, giving us its first game Zork I in 1980, and its last games in 1989, Shogun and Journey.
