If only it had Chex Quest :(

@ssjvash: Chex Quest wasn't a Sierra game. ;)

However, you can download Chex Quest 1-3 for free here:

Too bad they don't have betrayal at Krondor and betrayal In Antara

@alphasigchainsaw: This site is focused on the 1980's Sierra adventure games, partially because they all used the same game engine (AGI). The website author reverse engineered and rewrote the game engine in javascript.

You can buy a 2-pack of Betrayal at Krondor and Betrayal in Antara at GOG for only $6:

Holy network lag batman! Space Quest is almost completely unplayable, I think I'll go buy it somewhere instead...

..but but, where is Quest for Glory?

vote-for4vote-against

@filbie: Quest For Glory was written for the later SCI game engine, so can't be emulated on this site.

@lparsons42: If you do go buy Space Quest, keep in mind that the Activision CD and Steam collections only have the SQ1 VGA remake, not the original version featured on this site. GOG.com has the original SQ1, but not the VGA remake, in its SQ1-3 collection. I've seen both the Steam and GOG.com collections go on sale in the past, while the CD collection can be had pretty cheaply.

The Space Quest creators are currently working on getting a new adventure game off the ground:

Where's Leisure Suit Larry?? They show a screen shot from Lefty's..

@tarantino: They had to take LSL down. Activision gave the site permission to host the first game in a series for the Sierra titles they own, but Activision had sold the rights for LSL to CodeMasters, who haven't given the site permission yet.

There's an HD remake of LSL 1 in the works, due out early next year:

Where's the Android support?!

vote-for2vote-against

Aaagh! I desperately want this on my tablet, but I don't have an iPad! I could always play it through the browser but that's not as much fun. Oh well, here's hoping for an Android version.

And Android version or not, I really hope they include Quest For Glory soon. That's one of my favorite game series of all time, especially the first one.

I still have my Cranston Manor disk somewhere. Probably suffering severe bitrot by now.

And there were more Chex Quests past the first? I'm so behind! I only got the cd for the first one.

@urocyon: According to Wikipedia, only the first Chex Quest game was released on disc. Chex Quest 2 was a free download from the Chex Quest website in 1997, while Chex Quest 3 was made as a gift to the fans by the former developers in 2008.

@marsilies: YES! Thank you! I knew it wasn't Seirra (just reminded me of it, because they all had "quest" in the titles!) And I've been waiting for them to release a mac version!
