Hunt the Wumpus (PDP-10) 1972
First adventure (text game), predecessor of survival horror games
Silent, monochrome game.
1) Based on a simple hide and seek format featuring a mysterious monster (the Wumpus) that lurks deep inside a network of rooms.
2) Adventure game is a video game in which the player assumes the role of protagonist in an interactive story driven by exploration and puzzle-solving. The genre's focus on story allows it to draw heavily from other narrative-based media such as literature and film, encompassing a wide variety of literary genres. Nearly all adventure games (text and graphic) are designed for a single player, since this emphasis on story and character makes multi-player design difficult.
