    Space Quest: Chapter I – The Sarien Encounter

    Players of the original game are never told the hero’s name, but are instead asked to enter their own. The default name of “Roger Wilco” — a reference to the radio communication, “Roger, Will Comply” — became the de facto name of the hero in the later games of the series.

    Roger’s name was fitting in that, in keeping with his portrayal as an “everyman” schlub, he took his name from incorrect radio usage. When someone says “Wilco,” or “will comply,” “Roger” (or “received”) is assumed. There is no need to say “Roger, wilco,” and this is seen in aviation circles as the mark of an amateur.

    Space Quest: Chapter I – The Sarien Encounter game description

    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 Roger realizes what is going on, he discovers that he is the only survivor. The Sariens have killed the entire crew and stolen the valuable Star Generator. Roger’s immediate task is to find a way to leave Arcada, which is about to explode in fifteen minutes. And then he’ll have to show the Sariens why they should never mess with brave intergalactic janitors!

    Space Quest: The Sarien Encounter is a humorous sci-fi adventure game made with Sierra’s AGI engine. The gameplay is similar to that of King’s Quest: the player navigates Roger around with arrow keys and interacts with the game world by typing commands. There are puzzles to solve and plenty of situations where the player will have to use his wit to save Roger from death.
