Way cool, and kinda sad

I hope I never get divorced and think it would be a good idea to connect with my kids by playing a computer game with them. Even if it would.

DHQ: Digital Humanities Quarterly: Jerz. Somewhere Nearby is Colossal Cave: Examining Will Crowther’s Original “Adventure” in Code and in Kentucky:

Several caving resources shed light on the pre-history of “Adventure”, including Crowther’s 1975 map of the Bedquilt region of Colossal Cave (sometimes confused with Crowther’s original game), and a manual describing recreational caving as the CRF practiced it in the mid 70s. Insights gained from a recent CRF expedition to Colossal Cave – together with an analysis of the recovered source code and new feedback from Crowther, Woods, and others with knowledge of the original “Adventure” – clarify our understanding of an important digital artifact.
