      The female elf on the box cover isn't in the game btw, don't go looking, people :P
      As Fab said, a lot was already fixed and this was years ago.

      Anyone else wrote notes as you play Arcanum ? The "Indiana Jones' dad" thing where you wrote clues found from books in game.
      One thing I hate was reloading a Save from last weekend and completely forgetting where I am quest wise, and the things important NPCs had told me.

    Not quite sure on this one. Maybe if the average drops

    •  

      Yeah they must have somehow started the average at $10 or something… or set it to originally say "$10 or more" to artificially increase the average early on.

      •  

        I'm not sure what the average started as but the reddit post for this bundle has people talking about the $6 tier so I'm guessing a lot of people just bought the higher tiers and pushed it up.

  •  

    Is it worth paying $20? I don't any of the games, are they all good?

    • +2 votes

      There is definitely some nostalgia going on with most of the games there, all the "quest" games are point and click adventures, which were the best of the time when they were released in the late eighties/early nineties on pc.
      I have played them all in the distant past myself, but will be waiting to see if the average comes down.

      • +3 votes

        I thought the Quest games were all arrow key to move, not point and click?

        And if my memory is correct, they are 'pick up bucket' typing commands etc.

        Why are these prices "high" for such old games!?

        • +9 votes

          Because nostalgic people are willing to pay these prices. And to be honest, I don't mind seeing them do that. If they make decent money off updating old games for modern platforms then they're more likely to do it for all the old games people love. I'd rather see old games available at high prices than not at all. At least then you can wait for bundles like this or Steam sales or whatever.

  • +3 votes

    Wow, nostalgia-filled bundle, some fantastic games (Space Quest series, Quest for Glory series and King's Quest series are classics imo. If you like adventure titles, these are some of the best).

    • +7 votes

      They're also some of the worst. Some of the things you had to do in the space quest series in particular had basically no prompts indicating you should do them, plus there were plenty of situations where you could progress half way through the game before hitting a wall because you missed something near the start. And this was well before internet walkthroughs were readily available if you got stuck.

      Don't get me wrong, I love them and replay them once every few years, but man, game design has come a long way…

      • +2 votes

        Yep, I loved these games in their day, but games have come a long way since then. Definitely about nostalgia and the history of gaming, rather than being the best games you can play today.

        • +7 votes

          "Dive down" is one my biggest gripes of the series (SQ2). The only prompt you get is that you've entered a deeper section and need to swim (which your character does automatically), but we had no idea this meant you should go underwater in this section of the swamp (something never done before in a Sierra game)…

          (sorry for spoilers for anyone yet to play a ~30yo game ;) )

        • +2 votes

          @CarbonTwelve:

          One of the Quest for Glory ones I was stuck on was a bit where you have to defeat an enemy. By some miracle I actually figured out the random, obscure thing I had to do: push a big candlestick onto him instead of fighting him… but it didn't do anything.

          I spent ages typing every variation of "Push candlestick" I could think of, dying, reloading, repeating, trying other things, for days. Eventually I found out there's another word for candlestick: "Candelabra". Like most of the game's audience, I was a kid and had never heard that word before. And you have to type "Push Candelabra" exactly or die…

        •  

          @mgowen:

          Reminds me of lsl2 (first adventure game as a kid), at the ending where I stumbled across the magic commands to finish the game after days of trial and error.. I felt like I accomplished something back then, but now that I think about it, I was just held back by the interface.

      • +2 votes

        Yeah it has and I agree there's likely going to be some bumpy rides in store for people expecting a perfect experience.

        When I said they're some of the best, I meant in terms of storyline. I admit though that I have fond nostalgic memories of the titles I mentioned. A new user may/will have a different experience and expectations and should not expect 2016 graphics/controls for games from 25+ years ago.

        • +4 votes

          IMO the pinnacle of all the Sierra games was QFG4. The graphics, the atmosphere, the soundtrack, the storyline, the multiple solutions. Perfection.

        • +1 vote

          @CarbonTwelve: Yeah it was a fantastic game for the time.

          My personal fave out of all the ones I mentioned is KQ3. It certainly isn't/wasn't a great looking game, but the storyline really appealed to me at the time (wizard/dragon, protagonist being the slave who breaks free etc).

          Like I said, nostalgia is likely clouding my judgement with these games, but even if someone decides to go all out and spend the $20 to get all the games, I don't think it's a massive gamble, as long as the buyer goes in with the mindset that these are older games and know that they won't have same level of controls/graphics a game of today has.

        • +2 votes

          @Baltoski: I never actually got into the King's Quest series very much. Played all of them at least a bit, but other than KQ5 they never grabbed me like the QFG series did.

          Personally I can't really see people who didn't play them at the time going out of their way to try these games and loving them like we did. The graphics, controls, game mechanics, etc. are all done much better these days. Storyline is debatable, but even then when you break it down most of the old games didn't have amazing storylines (with a few notable exceptions).

          Ain't that the truth.

          Sadly, I tend to agree with you.

      • +2 votes

        That always frustrated me. You'd get to a point and then you'd have to replay the entire game because you missed something and there was only one solution to a puzzle.

      • +2 votes

        I like the idea that point and click hero can die too in Space Quest.

        Dialogue/ Plot is Space Quest is still humorous even in today's standard. Studio should make a move out of it.

        Space Quest 1 was the most brute. I wonder how many people could escape the starting spacecraft back in those day where internet don’t exists.

    Sierra's been working hard to drum up sales of the new King's Quest which is by all accounts, ordinary. The good news is that it seems that more old Sierra games are starting to be legally obtainable again, which gives me heart that we might finally get SWAT 4 back onto one of the larger platforms. Best co-op multiplayer ever.

    • +3 votes

      I'm with you with SWAT 4. I played the hell out of it!

    •  

      The new Kings Quest is pretty fun. I've enjoyed the first two episodes I've played (Episode 3 is on my pile of shame right now). I'm hoping that they expand and do new versions of Space Quest and Heroes Quest (Quest for Glory) as well.

    Sweet deal. As much as Space Quest and King's Quest would a nostalgia-fest for me, I always thought splitting each of them in half and then charging US$10 for each part was a bit over the top.

    Great collection of games.

    I've played all of the point-and-click adventures and they are fantastic. Well worth the price.

    Such a pity they haven't updated them to run on Mac / Linux. But you can get most of the adventure games working using ScummVM

  • +1 vote

    I really think these should be the normal price for a lot of these games now, and not a special price for the HB.

  •  

    Is the $20 worth it for the remake? I never played the original KQ, but played PQ3 and QFG1. Prefer LucasArt game like Monkey Island or Indiana Jones, but PQ3 is not bad.

    •  

      The $20 ones aren't a remake, just a new series of games in the same world. The reception has been mixed. I would say if you're already planning to get the $15 tier, then $5 more isn't too much to ask for a new series, but otherwise I probably wouldn't bother.

      FYI: chapter 1 is free, so if you're uncertain then just download it and try it out before paying the extra.

    For those who are unaware, AGD intractive remade sierra's original kq1,kq2,kq3 and qfg2, with voiceovers if you prefer not to play the oldschool versions. QFG2 is also pretty handy as the original version would be jarring if you played the sierra remade qfg1

      Looks like you mentioned the same thing as me above.

      There are also a couple of Easter eggs in these.

      These were built using AGS and don't run on ScummVM.

      Only the first two SQ fan games.

      • +1 vote

        A lot of people that are just interested in playing the game without knowledge of the technicalities behind the engine won't mind and probably won't care if it runs on SCUMMVM.

        AGD Interative are the people that created the remakes listed as per my post.

    • +2 votes

      These AGD releases are my pick for KQ. Much closer to what I remember as a kid - and playing with my kids they really loved the storyline and 'scary' parts! We were drawing maps of the forest on paper like we all did as kids so you don't get lost.. good times :)

      And yes some of the Easter eggs and hidden messages are hilarious!

      Am thinking of getting the Humble Bundle for SQ though, so see how I go.

    Ah police quest. I used to love those games, but i guess i must have been a weird kid if i was into unforgiving police procedurals

    Remember the Space Quest series from Sierra's duo the Two Guys From Andromeda? Well they are back & making a brand new SpaceVenture™!

    I wish the Two Guys SpaceVenture was out soon.

    This is a Five Nights at Freddy's style parody game with some new mechanics, fun artwork, humor and VO based on characters from the upcoming adventure game, SpaceVenture, being released by the Two Guys From Andromeda (original creators of the Space Quest series)

    Although, Cluck Yegger in Escape From The Planet of The Poultroid is out. He's somewhat related to Astro Chicken.

  •  

    As a Leisure Suit Larry fan, I was so excited when I saw the Sierra bundle but was disappointed to find out the LSL series wasn't included. :(
    Also would have loved to see Phredddy Pharkas in the bundle. Made by the same people who made LSL and still my all time favorite Adventure game ever !
    Still, this is a very good bundle especially if you love Adventure games like me. Not too many of these type of games made anymore ! (I don't count those mobile games)

  •  

    even better value if Police Quest SWAT is included in the $1 tier, wiki says it should be in but HB page says first four PQ games only.
    purposely failing the game was more fun than completing it: shoot a teammate in the back, flashbang the entry team leader, etc
    The dev must have anticipated because all the fails were shown as live action vid.
    good ol Swat Pup
