      I just purchased EcoQuest, The Search for Cetus and two Dr. Brain games from Goodwill for $4.00 each. I had never played EcoQuest before. I had spent most of my money at the time on King’s Quest, Space Quest and Laura Bow. I admit I had other games from other companies like Mean Street, Test Drive but not too much more.
      Anyways, EchoQuest was a GREAT game! I ran it on my 300Mhz AMD-2 emachine. I had to change the color to 256 colors. It has a strong message about keeping the waters clean, pointing out all the different ways in which it can be effected by polution.
      The game I had was on CD so it may have been a remake? If you ever find this game at a thrift store I strongly encourage you to buy it. 🙂

      Sierra released an official MPC CD version of the game shortly after the normal diskette version. And I have to agree that EcoQuest really is an excellent little game! I would love to have seen a third one.

      And I realise this is slightly off-topic, but I’m glad to see you mention Access Software’s Mean Streets. That, in my opinion, is one of the unsung greats of adventure games. It’s only because of the vastly inferior sequels that more people do not recognise it as such.

      You should check out the software package called ScummVM, it’s an engine reimplementation of the SCUMM engine used by LucasArts adventure games, but it also supports the AGI and SCI engines that power most Sierra games.

      Check it out, it’ll make your Sierra games easier to run on modern hardware!

      Or the recommended solution, which is even easier and gives better results:
