This assignment focuses on:

  • developing an appreciation for interactive fiction games; and
  • paper prototyping and user interface design.

This is a solo assignment. You may discuss the assignment only with your instructor.


Explore the original (interactive fiction) Adventure game.


Play the game Colossal Cave Adventure on-line.

Create a paper prototype of the game's map:

  • indicate commands to get you in and out of different places, and
  • other useful information.

You should do this on your own, without looking for on-line help. I am expecting to see a unique map.


Submit your map as a PDF document via WebCT. Be prepared to talk about the game (and demo it) to the rest of the class.

Include your name, date, class, and a short description at the top of the page.
