Adventure International was an American video game developer and publisher.

Foundation

Adventure International was founded by Scott and Alexis Adams in 1978. They sold text adventures, now commonly known as interactive fiction. Their first game, Adventureland, was the first adventure game that was sold commercially.

Closure

The company went bankrupt in 1985 and closed, as a result of the video game crash of 1983.

Legacy

The rights to the games eventually reverted to Scott Adams, who released them for free as shareware through the website of Scott Adams Grand Adventures.

There was also a company called Adventure International UK, which converted the Adventure International games to computers that were popular in the United Kingdom at the time, and also made some games of their own using the same interpreter used in the Adventure International games. After Adventure International went bankrupt, they began to release games as Horrorsoft beginning in 1989, and in 1992 they began using the name Adventure Soft, which still is in operation to this day.
