The Art of The Colonel’s Bequest

Today I present to you time-lapses of background art from a Sierra On-Line classic The Colonel’s Bequest. Until the VGA era Sierra stored background art for their games in a vector format, which allows for it to be displayed step by step to essentially see how it was created by the artists. Please enjoy this […]

Space Quest 5 non-interactive demo

A non-interactive demo of Space Quest V: The Next Mutation. Interesting because of a few unique resources and its use of Dynamix’s in-house adventure tools instead of Sierra’s engine that the final game uses. Download the demo here: http://scummvm.org/demos/

Lost in Time non-interactive demo

Here’s a cool little non-interactive demo of Coktel Vision’s Lost in Time (published by Sierra On-Line in the US). The demo features a neat AdLib tune by Charles Callet that isn’t found in the full game. You can download this and other Coktel Vision demos here: http://scummvm.org/demos/

Conquests of the Longbow talkie demo

Apparently at one point Sierra was developing a talkie version of Conquests of the Longbow: The Legend of Robin Hood, but the project was cancelled. This short non-interactive demo is all that survived.

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 5 – THE END)

Our friends’ journey comes to an end. Enjoy the last two levels of Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon!

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 4)

The recently freed Prince Buffoon has thrown a tantrum and refused to cooperate. As a result our heroes need to get him off a tree first and then rescue him from his own mushroom-enduced nightmare immediately after, only to see him being carried away by a bird. See me struggle with a few repetitive sequences.

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 3)

Adventure continues! I’d free Prince Buffoon much faster if I didn’t get stuck on two super annoying levels of this wonderful game. I complain a lot. Sorry.

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 2)

Our adventure continues! Sit down and listen to me talk nonsense while two brave goblins make their way through the castle and an undersea world. I complain about the sunken ship level a bunch.  

Gobliins 2 – Let’s Play (Part 1)

Our adventure begins! Fingus and Winkle, two heroic goblins are sent on a quest to save Prince Buffoon from an evil creature. Here’s part one of me rambling over one of my favorite games from French developer Coktel Vision. Goblins trilogy on GOG: http://www.gog.com/game/gobliiins_pack
