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

In 1983, a company named Adventure International UK converted the Adventure International games to computers that were popular in the United Kingdom at the time, and also created some of their own games under the Adventure International UK name. 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.
