You might be right, although I don’t remember seeing them during that visit… it was more than a “few years” ago – the time has really flown by! 🙂
I’d love to have those slides for the Sierra Museum, Ken, the next time you’re digging through stuff. I could certainly scan them for you.
Caesar 3 is no longer supported by the company who now owns the rights – Activision.
If you buy a used physical copy of the game from eBay, Amazon, etc, you have to be sure to get the code.
However, the game is currently digitally distributed by GOG – a very popular DRM-free service who have the rights to legally distribute a lot of old games – so if you purchase it from GOG, you won’t need a code:October 27, 2016 at 12:12 pm in reply to: Slightly pissed about the Epilogue/Season Pass situation #23437
Well, The Odd Gentlemen developed the game, but the latest incarnation of “Sierra” (http://www.sierra.com/) – Activision’s so-called indie label – is the distributor / publisher, so they’d be the ones responsible for how the game is sold, bundled, etc.
It was certainly not handled in the best way, but there was a recent post on the Sierra Facebook page that indicated they may be looking into this, so let’s hope they straighten this out.
This website – SierraGamers.com – is dedicated to the old Sierra games and was created by Sierra’s original founder, Ken Williams. It’s not really active any longer.
The best place to make your feedback heard is to post and/or send a message through the official Facebook page of Activision’s Sierra label: https://www.facebook.com/OfficialSierraGames/January 18, 2015 at 4:46 pm in reply to: First 100 people to tweet get new King’s Quest Game! #23426
After suspicious circumstances surrounding this post, Matt Korba from The Odd Gentlemen has confirmed that this is FAKE.
You can purchase the King’s Quest games for a great price at GOG.com, and then you’ll have a legal copy and won’t have to worry about spyware and viruses.
GOG is a great source not just for many classic games, but also for modern titles as well. All of the games you can purchase on GOG are DRM-free.
Unfortunately, they don’t have the Laura Bow series yet, but they do have King’s Quest.
GOG has split the series into three collections, 1-3, 4-6, and 7-8 (Mask):November 10, 2013 at 8:08 pm in reply to: Did sierra publish or develop any title to the 8 and 16 bit consoles ? #28753
King’s Quest 5 NES
King’s Quest 1 Sega Master System
Willy Beamish Sega CD
Stellar 7 3DO
That’s just to name a few off the top of my head.
The Art of Sierra / The Sierra Archives projects are attempting to access as much original artwork and development materials from the Sierra games as possible in order to archive it in the highest quality possible, so that we can help preserve and celebrate the legacy of Sierra’s games and all the people who made them.
The later games had painted backgrounds (and photo/video work) that were digitized, but the earlier games were all drawn with Sierra’s art tools and there is much less artistic development material.
All of Sierra’s original artwork and development materials were lost when Sierra shut down, however, it surfaces from time to time from the original artists as well as Sierra alumni.
We are still archiving materials for these projects as well as trying to go back to some of the materials we archived very early in the project that do not meet the quality standards that we now have for the highest possible quality preservation. Besides collecting materials, we are also looking for fans with extraordinary collections and great Sierra stories to tell, as well as wanting to get in touch with everyone who worked at Sierra for interviews. If you can contribute to these projects in some way, please get in touch with me! firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m sure most fans here know this, but The Art of Sierra and Sierra Archives project is continuing to seek original Sierra materials, including but not limited to art, for preservation. I would love to get in touch with anyone owning such materials to arrange to have them scanned. email@example.com.
Yes, it’s OK to use the copyright protection posted on this site, that’s why it’s here!
Quickest place to lookup Space Quest 6 documentation with copyright protection info is SpaceQuest.net. These are the pages you want:
SierraGamers also has the manuals posted here:
Hey Tom perfect, I have the details for what you need. LOL I didn’t mean you had to post in the other thread, I was just trying to draw some more attention to it 😉 Hmmm… I can’t seem to find an “email user” function or anything like that here… Tom, shoot me an email at klassen at hotmail dot com and I’ll get you what you need.
I’ve been trying to get support for a backup disk project here: http://sierragamers.com/aspx/blob2/blobpage.aspx?msgid=634063&bbs=Topic.418710.530202
Please post the diskette size (5.25″ or 3.5″) and the version # of the game you have (listed on the floppy labels). With that information, myself or someone else here should be able to provide a replacement disk for you.
