[SierraGamers] A note from Ken and Roberta Williams 03/12/2011

You are receiving this note because at some time in the past you have registered on my website.

First I’d like to thank all of you who have sent emails, or posted messages, thanking Roberta and I for the games. We’re bad about responding to our email, but we do read it all!

One common theme, in emails we receive, is that we are constantly being asked when we’ll make another game. Unfortunately, as sad as we are to admit this, the odds are heavy that the answer is “never.” Like an athlete turning 30, there comes a time when it is appropriate to exit as a hero, and let the next generation take their turn.

That said, I have a bit of an announcement, and an opportunity for you.

Our son, Chris, who worked with us a VERY long time ago at Sierra, is now a lead engineer at BrandX games on a massively online social adventure game called “Odd Manor.”

Chris is seeking beta testers (actually alpha testers) for his game, and would appreciate it if you would sign up. Game testing will be during a closed “pre-alpha” launch on Facebook starting in April.

To sign up, go to this link:

The game is early in development, so “be kind.”

PS For a bit more info about the game, you can check out these links: (although, Chris needs testers, so PLEASE just sign up and check the game out yourself)

Good Morning,
I have recently acquired a Poster with a foam backing on it of Heroe's Quest. I would like to find out if any such posters were actually produced by Sierra if not is this a copy write infringement to be selling them? The one I received looks exactly like the one posted for the contents of Heroe's Quest. Please let me know I do not want to do any thing illegal. Thank you for your time and for all the great games that have been produced over the years. It was a sad day when Sierra closed their doors;(
Best Regards

Still play your old games from time to time, loved Space Quest. It gets more challenging to run your old games on newer OSs but is worth while. Don't like the first person shooter games at all. You guys did great!!

Keep up the great work. Can't wait to play the next generation of games on facebook.

I followed your suggestion and registered at Gold Manor, but couldn't figure out how to play the game. I did register, too. Nice to hear that you guys are alive and well! I loved playing your Space Quest and King Quest games. There has been nothing since that compares. The Indy Jones Adventure games came the closest.
