!!Purpose

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.

!!Assignment

Explore the original (interactive fiction) Adventure game.

!!Details

Play the game [[http://www.ifiction.org/games/play.phpz | 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.

!!Submission

Submit your map as a PDF document via [[https://webct.cofc.edu | 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.
