Adventure In Serenia / Wizard And The Princess Sierra Online / IBM 1982

This is usually regarded as the first adventure game with color graphics. It was definitely Sierra's first. Ultima had color graphics around the same time, but that's an RPG. Serenia was later used as the town in King's Quest V. It came out first on the Apple II as "The Wizard and the Princess", and was released for the PC as Adventures in Serenia by IBM in 1982. You wander around the land of Serenia in search of a princess imprisoned by an evil wizard. It had some cute graphics for the time, but mainly relied on very simple situations and cliches for their puzzles. It sold more than sixty thousand copies, a substantial sell through for the early 1980s. Roberta Williams' next game would be an even more successful game called King's Quest.
