Cygnus Entertainment

Cygnus Entertainment was formed by Ken and Roberta Williams, who are best known as the founders of Sierra On-Line, a legendary publishing company that they founded in 1979.

Ken ran the company and Roberta designed many of the hit titles over a 20-year period prior to selling the company and retiring. During that time Sierra On-Line dominated the industry bestseller charts releasing over 200 titles, including King’s Quest, Space Quest, Half-Life, Ultima, Red Baron, Half-Life, Nascar, Quest For Glory, Dr.Brain and many others.

In 2020, the Williams decided to re-enter the games business creating Cygnus Entertainment. Their first product is a complete reimagining of the game that launched Sierra On-Line, Colossal Cave.

Cygnus presently has a team of 16 full time developers.

Featured Game

Colossal Cave is a reimagining of the original text-based adventure game, first introduced in 1975 by Will Crowther and Don Woods, as a fully immersive 3D VR experience.

In the game, players explore a vast and extensive cave, seeking treasures within. Along the way, they will encounter a variety of characters, some of whom will attack and some of whom will entertain. For instance, there is a Troll (at the troll bridge), a bear, a snake, dwarves (seven, of course), and a pirate. The player’s quest is to find all the treasure. The challenge is not easy, and there will be a wide variety of puzzles to overcome.
