Back in the mid-1980s, computer games were created by their fans. It so happened that two guys, Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy decided that they would like to play King's Quest in a science fiction setting. After being initially rejected by Ken Williams who ran Sierra at the time, they created a small demo to show him they could pull it off. They got the job...

[Wandrell] We are talking about a nice remake. Maybe if you have played the Quest series you'll remember that, back at the beginning, they were not like the mouse-driven games we know. Until someone decided to make a remake of the original game of each saga. And one of them is the game we are going to talk about.

The least liked game by me from entire Sierra family. I dunno, i could never get into it. Although, i did finish the 1st part i think.. but i don't remember enjoying it. Also, it's strange that this one is rated 4 and Police Quest, which happens to be my first Sierra adventure is 2. That ain't fair, doc :) PQ is actually GREAT. But just the 1st one, the others may surpass it in graphics, but not in the gameplay. Apparently, i care more about the gameplay than visuals. :)

To me it's the complete opposite: I loved the humour of Space Quest and disliked the pseudo realism and stringent protocol of the Police Quest games. But maybe that's because I am a total Science Fiction Nerd. ;)

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

Space Quest 1: The Sarien Encounter is perhaps one of the best Sierra Adventure games I've ever played. It spawned a couple of sequels, and there where even almost plans for a 3D game in the early 2000s (which was cancelled of course).

I don't think i will ever get sick of messing with Roger Wilco. These games were some of the best in sierras lifetime and i still play them on and off all the time. I have the VGA and EGA big box versions as part of my collection.

Sure, bring em on! We may still lack some of the versions, and i'm personally interested in EGA releases of SQ1 and SQ4. Those are very rare though, but still.. who knows.
