      Quest for Glory 5 was originally going to have a multiplayer component. Though scrapped from the final release, I believe there’s a demo available with the multiplayer mode still intact.

      i could be wrong about this, but i seem to remember that the actual code for the multiplayer part was released to the public with hopes that someone would continue the project. i know that sounds weird for a company like sierra, but im pretty sure they did it or were planning to. does anyone else remember this, or am i just imagining it?

      i would really like to get a hold of the source if thats true. i would love to continue the work on the multiplayer part, it would be an honor. i would also like a demo if it was in there, not that the server would be up though.

      As far as I know, Sierra has never released source code for any of their games. Some people have reverse-engineered some of the SCI games to effectively get the source, but Quest for Glory 5 was written in C++. The code is much more complex than that of an SCI game.

      The original QG5 demo featured limited multiplayer play. If I recall correctly, you could see other players and talk to them, but not really interact otherwise. QG5 was designed to be both a solitaire and a multiplayer game, but we greatly underestimated the challenge of creating and testing an MMORPG. After QG5 was released, we looked at making a multiplayer version of it and concluded that we couldn’t get it done under any reasonable budget.

      Lately Lori and I have been spending almost every non-working hour playing World of Warcraft. If we had created QG Online and it had come out half as well as WoW, we would have been very proud of our accomplishment. WoW has a lot of software bugs, but the game balance, quest, and guild mechanics are wonderful. (We play Horde characters on Silver Hand and Alliance on Earthen Ring, may eventually get back to playing our Night Elves on Shadow Council.)

      thank you for the reply. it’s really good to hear from another ex-sierra employee. i had no idea that QG5 was coded in c++. i figured it was just done in an updated version of the SCI engine. thanks for the insight.

      Did I imagine seeing something somewhere a while ago about plans for Quest for Glory VI if it ever came out would have different playable races to choose from, like the katta and it would take place in Japan or have an oriental setting?
