For many it’ll be the original text adventures that hold strong memories. If you remember back to those days, there’s a chance the Sierra Entertainment/Sierra On-Line name will be front and centre. The two founders of that iconic brand are back and with Cygnus Entertainment comes Colossal Cave on Xbox. This should be seen as the ultimate 3D interpretation of the original text adventure.
Finally available for purchase and download on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One is Colossal Cave. It previously launched on PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, PC and Meta Quest 2.
Enter Ken and Roberta Williams
Colossal Cave sees Ken and Roberta Williams hit back into the gaming scene in style. Presented via their new company, Cygnus Entertainment, it’s these two who are looking to take those old-school adventures kicking and screaming into the modern era.
Colossal Cave runs at a £20.99 price point unveiling unfathomable adventures and wonders from there on out. This is a properly true adventure. Dip in and you’ll be working a winding labyrinth of underground caves, as story book-styled beasts come in the form of living creatures. Some of these will become your best friend, others, the most evil of foes.
With a host of puzzling to enjoy, item and treasure collection and more, the only question left to ask is whether or not you have the courageous spirit needed to venture deep into the Colossal Cave.
