Roger Wilco is one of the most important men on the starship Arcada: he is the janitor! Just when he was doing what he does best (dozing off in a closet), the shrill sound of an alarm penetrated the air. Arcada is attacked by the evil Sariens! Before you realize what is going on, you discover that you are the only survivor. The Sariens have killed the entire crew and stolen the valuable Star Generator. Your immediate task will be to find a way to leave Arcada, that is about to explode in fifteen minutes. And then you’ll have to show the Sariens why they should never mess with brave intergalactic janitors!  (From Mobygames description)

Space Quest 1 History

Ken says:

My recollection on Space Quest is that all of the credit for its origin goes to Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe. They came to me with the idea, and I remember not being overwhelmed by it at first – but approving them some time to build a short demo of the game so that I could better see what they had in mind. I loved their demo!!! Once I actually saw the simple 3 or 4 room adventure they built, I immediately approved the project, and they pretty much took it from there.
