Space Quest I: Roger Wilco in the Sarien Encounter game description
Space Quest I: Roger Wilco in the Sarien Encounter is a remake of the original release of Space Quest: Chapter I – The Sarien Encounter. The new version has enhanced graphics (256 color VGA) and soundblaster support. It uses the SCI game engine (point-and-click interface, icons along the top) rather than the AGI engine (mixed point-and-click with text parser). Some of the puzzles have been slightly changed to accommodate the new interface and it is also possible to skip the arcade part. There are a few additional scenes and more elaborate text descriptions, mostly enhancing the humorous effect.
Sierra re-released the first chapter in the Space Quest series in a new VGA style with 256-color VGA graphics, a new point-and-click icon style interface, and digital sound supporting all of the major sound card brands of the day. In the early 1990s, Sierra released a number of VGA remakes for several of their adventure game franchises, including Leisure Suit Larry and Police Quest. The story remains exactly the same, however a few puzzles had to be reworked due to the new interface, as opposed to the original text-based parser interface. Another notable difference is that the color of Roger’s hair changed from brown to blond.
Those attempting to play the game on modern systems often deal with a number of time bugs caused by processing speeds that obliterate any of the game’s original programming. Fortunately, a number of publicly available player-made mods exist to ensure that the game can be played well into the future.
