Inspiration! Space Quest series

Growing up with computer games in the age of the visionary developer(s) I was treated to some unique experiences, one of my favorite of which was the Space Quest series by Mark Crowe, Scott Murphy and Sierra On-Line. If you aren’t familiar, it combined science fiction tropes, comedy, parody, dark humor and puzzles with fantastic artwork which straddled the transition from overly pixelated 16 color EGA to the breakthrough of *gasp* 256 color VGA! Both the EGA and VGA art look fantastic in my opinion. The inspiration of the creators really came through in these games and it’s partly their fault I keep banging my head against the wall trying to make sci-fi comedy comics.
