About the Graphic Adventures category

Graphic adventures

Graphic adventure games emerged as graphics became more common. Adventure games began to supplement and later on replace textual descriptions with visuals (for example, a picture of the current location).

Early graphic adventure games used text-parsers to input commands. The growing use of mice led to the “point-and-click” genre of adventure games, where the player would no longer have to type commands. The player could, for example, click on a hand icon and then on a rope to pick up the rope.
