Just Adventure is a computer game website dedicated to the genre of adventure games.[2] Founded in 1997, it publishes reviews and previews of adventure games, as well as opinion articles and interviews with game designers. The site was founded by Francis "Randy" Sluganski, who died on November 6, 2012 after a ten-year struggle with cancer.[3][4]

The site's reviews have been quoted on some adventure game box covers,[5][6][7] and it is listed as a reviewer on CNET's Metacritic and GameRankings.

Ragnar Tornquist, the creator of the adventure games The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey has stated that the reviews on Just Adventure are "very important to [him]".[8] In 2000, PC Gamer US columnist Michael Wolf called Just Adventure "the best site on the Web for the adventure game fan".[9]
