  • Scott Adams Inc. - Early company name

Overview edit · view history

Scott Adams created Adventure International in the wake of the success of his text adventure games published by the TRS-80 Software Exchange (later The Software Exchange). It released all his classic adventures along with some new ones, plus a line of games by other designers, notably the Other Venture series. Amongst the later text adventures was the Questprobe series, based on Marvel characters.

The company went out of business in 1985 following the general decline of text adventures in the market.

Credited on 129 Games from 1978 to 1989
