Do you still remember playing the old school of adventure games back in the 80’s? Sierra was the most popular game company in that era with all the adventure games such as Police Quest, King’s Quest, Space Quest, and the Leisure Suit Larry’s series. I remembered playing them all when I was in Elementary school on my Intel 286 processor (10 MHz) and nobody seemed to mind with the 4 color graphics :)
Did you miss the good old days? Not to worry, because you can actually re-play these legacy games (or if you weren’t born in that era) on Sarien.net using your browser!
That’s right. All the games are Flash based but the graphics are exactly the same as the old times. Back then, gameplay was all that matters and not the graphics. Nowadays, we’ll find games that should’ve been gone to the bin before they even got released. There are just too many games focusing only on the graphics and not the gameplay.
At the moment this post is written, you can play these following games at Sarien.net (more will be added):
- Space Quest 1 : The Sarien Encounter
- Space Quest 2: Vohaul’s Revenge
- Police Quest : In Pursuit of the Death Angel
- Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
- The Black Cauldron
To play the game, you can use your keyboard (back when no one had a mouse like we do now) or using your mouse (implemented by Sarien.net’s developers). For maximum satisfaction, use your keyboard just like the old days! :) I remember having to type “look” on every screen just to find out what’s going on and which object that I could interact lol.
Huh? Multiplayer mode on an Adventure game? Err not really. There is never such a thing but when playing these classic games in Sarien.net, you can see other real players walking around just like you, playing the game :) Although you can’t basically interact with them, it’s still fun to see and you can actually copy them to solve the puzzle.
