What I think is cool is that people such as you, Danny (who were not even born when this game was released) like the game! It tells me something about the quality of the game

has anybody had a problem with the characters not appearing properly in the text box and the top line of the game? I tried downloading it from a number of sources and they all seem to appear garbled.... am I doing something wrong?

If you're using WinXP, those old AGI games can give some trouble now and then. What we always do in those cases, is try another interpreter. Prefered one is Nagi, which can be found here. It could require some tweaking in the .ini file, but it's your best bet (and gives three-channel sound instead of one-channel sound without having to use the soundblaster patch )

"George, do you have SQ2?" "Yeah, and SQ1 too". What to say about this megaculty dialog between me and my friend at 6th degree of basic school? CULT, CULT and CULT. This is the game. This is the adventure. I love you, Roger

Where did the Soundtrack of the game come from? Is there a way to get sound like that in the EGA version?

This is one of the greatest games of all time. I'll say now that if you're a fan of adventure games and science fiction, you HAVE to play Space Quest. It's chalk-full of jokes and puzzles. The game itself isn't too difficult, but there are many ways to make Roger die (usually with plenty of warning)--and you'll probably find yourself killing him on purpose, because most of the manners of death are hilarious.

Try this one: (SPOILER)
When walking over the grate on the path above in the desert cave, purposefully fall from that height. I don't know why, but I couldn't stop laughing at the result!
