quest for glory

Quest for Glory! Space Quest! King’s Quest! But mostly Quest for Glory! When I was about 10 or so, I had this friend who I’d sleep over at most weekends because he had the first two Quest for Glory games and we’d stay up all night playing them and this one time, we were jumping on his bed and broke it and his mom was super mad but she couldn’t speak English very well so it was also sort of funny. I don’t know why I remember that. I can’t even remember what I ate for breakfast 20 minutes ago, but I think I can smell toast. Maybe I’m having a stroke. Wait, no. I’m covered in crumbs. I’m okay, everybody.

Anyway, Steam has now added a whole lot more of Sierra’s greatest hits, including the Quest for Glory anthology and the Police Quest Collection, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery, and Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned, plus Phantasmagoria and Phantasmagoria 2: A Puzzle of Flesh. In case you missed it before, the King’s Quest Collection and Space Quest Collection are also available.

Also, it’s one of the company’s more underrated games, but the isometric RPG Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura is out now too. It’s basically Fallout in steampunk goggles, and it’s brilliant.
