(re: re: Other) Umm, the Eco Quest story is actually pretty simple. It didn’t sell well enough, so a sequel was never considered. At least that’s as far as I know. Someone probably had an EQ3 story in mind, but it was never turned into a full-scale project. Pity though. I’ve always loved the games. EQ1 was my first Sierra game in VGA and I was amazed at the graphics. The story, music and everything else in it is superb too. (Has anything Jane Jensen has put her hands on been anything less than great?) I would love to own a copy of the EQ1 CD version. EQ2 was a little weaker as a whole, but I liked the athmosphere. The fact that there wasn’t even a talkie version of that one speaks pretty well of its success.
However, I believe at least EQ1 brought in a lot of money to Sierra over a long period of time. Years and years after its release you could hear about it, and I think it sold very well in Europe.
