Developer Biography

Scott Adams (b. 10th July 1952) is considered the founder of adventure-style games (interactive fiction) for personal computers. Together with his wife Alexis, he founded Adventure International as a publisher of games for home computers.

Inspired by ADVENTURE written by college students Will Crowther and Don Woods for a DEC computer in 1977, Scott Adams wrote his first game Adventureland in 1978. It was originally created for the TRS-80 in the BASIC programming language. Between 1978 and 1984 he wrote many games, all interactive fiction, and some versions contain bitmap graphics and animations. He remade his original games as SAGAs (Scott Adams Graphical Adventures).

In the mid eighties, the company went out of business and Scott became a senior programmer for Avista, Inc (Formerly Insight Industries, Inc) in Platteville, Wisconsin. After a hiatus of 15 years, he returned briefly with the release of Return to Pirate's Island 2 in August 2000, written for modern platforms.
