TCW Podcast Episode 159 - International Adventure

 

In this episode, we look at the computer game company 'Adventure International' which is one of the first companies to put out adventure games on early home computers.  Founded by Scott Adams, no not THAT Scott Adams, and his ex-wife Alexis.  The company had a short lifespan of less than a decade.  We look at the life of Adams, and how his love of puzzles and games turned into a small business that unfortunately ended in the mid-1980s
