This oddest of years is drawing to a close. But I'm happy to see that it has been put to good use. Our database lists no less than 67 new games released this year.
Once again, thanks to everybody for keeping the site up and running and new material coming in at a steady pace. I'm grateful for all contributions, be they in front of or behind the scenes.

I haven't been around much during the last months, but I'm happy to see the level of activity and very grateful for everybody who helps keeping the operation running. Both in front of and behind the scenes. With large parts of the world in various stages of lockdown, I hope that some retro gaming can help keep your spirits high.

Update posts might have been tardy of late, but the same can not be said of actual updates - wow!

A thank you to everyone who has contributed to CASA during the past few trying months. (Plus a personal thank you from this not so active admin to the admins who have been putting the work in, I'll try to up my game in the future.)

Here's a much overdue update, posted in the middle of a global crisis which makes anything I have to say at the moment fairly pointless. Possibly many of you have too many other concerns to care a great deal about adventure games right now, but hopefully for some text games will be the perfect way to spend time while a lot of us are forced to stay at home, anyway. I sincerely hope that everybody is safe at the moment. Please take good care of yourselves, whereever you are.

Due to other obligations I have had very little time for CASA as of late, so props to my fellow administrators for keeping things flowing. I've just noticed that we've crossed the 8,000 games threshold. Very impressive!

Random Game

Curse of the Pharaoh, The

Plot

A curse has been placed on the land following the theft of the two rubies which served as the eyes of the Pharaoh Ickabathan's mummy. You must attempt to break the curse by recovering the lost rubies from within the Pharaoh's pyramid and return them to the mummy.

Notes

This adventure was published on the Atari disk version of SoftSide, vol. 5, no. 6, March 1982, instructions pp. 58-59.

Unlike many other SoftSide games, which were fairly portable, this illustrated adventure was written specifically for the Atari to fit into just 16K of RAM.
