Crowther & Woods' inaugural text adventure game Colossal Cave Adventure figured prominently as a plot device in an episode (entitled "Adventure") of AMC's early-computing television drama Halt And Catch Fire, so to allow modern viewers the additional context needed to appreciate the historical reference, the TV network hosted a free web-playable illustrated version of the game complete with contextual hints.

In a nutshell, this early text adventure challenges the player to successfully navigate a fantastical cave complex, looking for treasures and surviving devious puzzles, monsters and mazes.
