A classic game remade. We’ve seen this done many times. But the game I’m talking about today is a really old one. Like REALLY! Colossal Cave Adventure, which first dropped in 1976 is making a comeback through mobile in a 3D avatar.

This game has seen a lot over the past five decades. Originally created by developer Will Crowther, it was a totally text-based adventure game made for the PDP-10 mainframe computer. A year later, Don Woods took the game and expanded it.

For Android, Roberta Williams (author of King’s Quest and Phantasmagoria) took up the huge task of rewriting the game for mobile players. Along with Ken Williams, Roberta spent two years creating a fully immersive 3D experience for Colossal Cave Adventure.
