Rules: I do not necessarily need to play “to completion” although I will give every game a strong effort. I am allowed to use hints and walkthroughs as necessary, but only after significant personal attempt.

(*) Defining an “adventure game” is somewhat fuzzy. I am using lists from multiple websites and using my own judgment.

(**) I might start mixing in modern games, but I will be keeping alive a chronological sequence.

  4. Isn’t Langston’s Castle from 1974? In your Wander post, you say so…

    Apart of that, great project, I hope you’re not abandoning it. I’d love to play those games too, but as I never find the time, reading about someone playing them is really great — besides the historical value, of course.
