After a year of putting it off, I finally dug into my storage unit, with the help of two moving guys .. and, dug out 15 huge boxes of my old Sierra files.
I haven’t looked into the boxes yet, but suspect I’ll find some VERY cool memorabilia, including a full set of magazines.
Tomorrow will be fun! I’ll post here what I find…

This is the stuff I have been anxiously waiting for!! After your posting of the KQ design notes, I’ve been dying for more!!
Also, I really really like the new site design! The menu bar at the top reminds me off the old Sierra menu bar from earlier games, which happened to be my favorite! Kq1-6 and so on…

That’s great to hear Ken. Brad will be thrilled if you have a complete set of magazines, as it will help him fill in the gaps. Besides the magazines, I’m sure you must have tons of other goodies – I am emailing you that proposal now.
(re: InterAction Mag.) As I mentioned earlier: today, I spent the day digging through our mini-storage unit to see what old Sierra “stuff” I had.
Well… it was a day of good and bad news. I found lots of old products, a bunch of pictures of the Sierra staff, copies of Interaction Magazine, press clippings, and tons of my old correspondence.
I wanted to find old game design documents, but they weren’t to be found. The design teams themselves had these. Roberta has her old designs, and I’ll post those here as I get them scanned. But, I had nothing from the other projects.
There was some amazing correspondence I’ll post here if I can. Much of this is covered by secrecy agreements, which hopefully have expired. I have copies of correspondence with MANY industry legends – even Bill Gates himself.
It was a fun day, reliving Sierra’s history. I have a huge pile of stuff – far more than I have time to sort through or scan. I’m not sure what the next step is, but at least now I know what I have, and can start building an action plan to put it here.

Well, I’m glad you’re going to scan Roberta’s design documents — the KQ games were always my favorites, anyway!
I wonder if any of the other designers still have their documents and could be convinced to share some scans with us?

I’m going to work on that actually… That is part of what I discussed with Ken. I’m starting by just getting in touch with whoever I can and see if I can get them to contribute anything. I’ll keep track of all correspondance… now if some contribute, maybe afterwards those who wouldn’t at first would be convinced by what others contribute.
I will keep you updated on this – so please don’t everyone go and start emailing other Sierra designers.
(Designers Documents) An update regarding other designers having their design documents or other Sierra material. I’ve emailed a number of former Sierra staff now… and the results are good and more people agree to help every week or so. So the project is well under way… and with any luck, come January I will have some goods to show for it… or at least be able to give you considerable news.
