Synopsis

Not quite the original text adventure (see the Wonder system) never-the-less for most computer users of the 1970s this was the first adventure game they ever encountered, and thus this game has had a huge influence on the genre.

Will Crowther's original, from 1976, was based on the actual layout of the Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.

In 1977, Don Woods helped Crowther with expanding the game and adding various fantasy elements. It's this latter version which is normally referred to as "the original adventure".

The number of CCA variants is fairly large (key), both for mainframe and home computer systems.
