"You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building. Around you is a forest. A small stream flows out of the building and down a gully."

That is the start of an early text adventure "Colossal Cave - The Original Adventure"

This page is a tribute to all the persons who created and kept the text adventure alive. Computer text adventures started in the early 1960's. An early text adventure was Colossal Cave or Original Adventure by WOODS and CROWTHERS. It was based on the real colossal cave in the eastern U.S. One can search and find the original 350 point game as well as the 550 and 750 point ones.

It preceded Zork and many others
(including graphic games).

The best virtual machine you have with you
(your mind).
