  • Original Colossal Cave Adventure Now Playable On Alexa

    Last month Eric Raymond announced the open sourcing of the world's very first text adventure.

    Now Slashdot reader teri1337 brings news about their own special project:

    A few old-timers here may recall with fond memories the phrase "Somewhere nearby is Colossal Cave..." Well, a voice-playable version of Colossal Cave "Adventure" is now available on Amazon Echo devices as a free Alexa Skill.

    This is a port of the original 1976 text adventure game written by Willie Crowther and Don Woods, which started the interactive fiction genre and led to later games like Infocom's Zork.

    This version was written from scratch as an AWS Lamda function incorporating the original 350 point game database, and made available with permission from Don Woods.
