Description:  The sequel to Sierra's award-winning NASCAR Racing, NASCAR 2 used a new game engine, which improved the graphics, physics, sound, and multiplayer.  It also added the official cars, tracks, and drivers of the 1996 season, an arcade mode, mouse interface, and radio spotter.  It was also the first NASCAR game to use have 3D Acceleration 3Dfx Acceleration through DOS, and Rendition through Windows.  (From Mobygames description)


Roberta Williams, who designed Sierra's first game, Mystery House in 1980, felt it was time to write another murder mystery which lived up to the computer capabilities of the late eighties. Mystery House, which was put on public domain in 1988, was the first computer game ever with graphics, but it lacked colors, animation and sound. The Colonel's Bequest was developed, using EGA graphics, Sierra's SCI engine, sound and a music score, as well as featuring a deeper plot and more detailed character descriptions.

The game has a sequel, The Dagger of Amon Ra, which is also the last Laura Bow game. Both games are also included in the 1997 King's Quest Collection and the Roberta Williams Anthology. Although the original release of The Colonel's Bequest can still relatively easily be found on online auctions, a complete original game is considered as a true collector's item, as it contains many goodies which are often missing from second-hand sales, particularly the Laura Bow pen and notebook. The games copyright protection is also quite original: the gamer needs to use a magnifying glass (included in the box) to identify a fingerprint on the game screen.
