Gaming in 1980

I just found this jpg of a game I was completely addicted to in 1979 and 1980 while “working” at Duke University. I took a 3 month post as an administrative assistant and had about 1 hour of work to do each day so naturally I spent 7 hours a day playing “Adventure.” This was an early computer game developed by Will Crowther. I was completely enamored with this game, which was text based. A far cry from today’s gaming, that’s for sure.

I’d play it still if I could get my hands on it :)
