IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT WEB ADVENTURES GAMES: As of January 12th, 2021, the Flash plugin no longer works in browsers.
Not to worry. Our team has created a Flash Game Archive.
There you will find instructions on how to download the standalone Flash Player,
along with links to download all games within the Web Adventures catalog and play them offline.
In an effort to keep Web Adventures a viable resource for students, parents and teachers,
and continue to serve the more than 500,000 yearly users, Rice University School Mathematics Project (RUSMP)
has secured an exploratory grant for the purposes of 1) creating a downloadable archive of all Web Adventures’
Flash-based games and 2) initiating the first phase of a complete redevelopment of the games and game sites.
The project will require additional grants to bring it to fruition but we’ve made our first strides toward that goal.
In the interim, owing to the end-of-life for Flash by December 31st, 2020, you may now download and play each
Web Adventures game on your computer’s desktop using the standalone Flash Player Projector Content Debugger
(see instructions on How To Download & Play).
We have made every effort to preserve the games, as they were intended, and package them up in an easy-to-use
format—with the caveat that players may no longer save their game play or link to external resources.
PRESERVING THE LEGACY OF FLASH
There are a few quiet but valient efforts by developers and content creators around the world trying to preserve the rich history of Flash games. If you like Web Adventures,
you may find these additional game resources enjoyable.
BlueMaxima’s Flashpoint - developing their own open-source software platform called Flashpoint, the project has archived over 38,000 Flash games for enthusiasts to play offline.
Internet Archive - doing their part to preserve Flash's corner of early Internet culture, the Internet Archive
has cataloged over 2,000 games.
Kongregate - this video game publisher is currently in the process of preserving it's giant catalog, and for now will be
keeping its Flash games online. Read more about it at The Verge.
